The 5Ws & How of Media Booth
Managing Director of Media Booth
Growing up in the Village of Eganville, Ontario, I started my journalism journey at the young age of nine, after I had my first story published in the community's local paper, The Eganville Leader.
Later, while attending Opeongo High School, I was selected for a position as youth reporter at the Leader. It was here where I learned how the newsroom coordinates and gained the experience that benefited my future endeavors.
After graduating from Opeongo with a scholarship for Studies in Visual Arts Communications Technology,
I moved to Toronto, Ontario in September 2001, and obtained the Print and Broadcast Journalism Diploma at The School of Media Studies & Information Technology at Humber College in the spring of 2005.
In the fall of 2007, I moved to Fort McMurray, Alberta, and have further advanced into my career with the experience as the Special Features Editor at the Fort McMurray Today from January 2008, until November 2010. In April 2011, I co-launched snapd Wood Buffalo in the Regional Municipality of Wood Buffalo and managed the publication for three years, until June 2014.
In March 2014, I created Media Booth to help a variety of local clients in the business and social-profit sectors with their communication and marketing needs.
Most recently, I've been hired as the Managing Editor of Connect Weekly Newspaper in July 2015. Through this position, I correlate with over a dozen of freelancer writers and photographers to produce and bring a distinctive journalistic voice to Fort McMurray and the surrounding communities in the Regional Municipality of Wood Buffalo.
