As someone that loves the writing profession in its various forms, I am grateful for having had a career teaching as well as helping others in the art of communication. Having studied communications and marketing, I was first selected for a college practicum program where I worked in a Melbourne Advertising and Public relations company on mock projects in tandem with my mentor’s actual real advertising accounts. This allowed me to observe first hand how publicity and advertisement campaigns were run. Right after graduation, I began working for Alex Bialocki at Blackmoore Audiovision, now Encore Productions. I became production assistant to a variety of producers who were in charge of multi-media projects from Avon, Mobil to the local government. Since then, I have had the pleasure of giving my writing and editing services to non-profit organizations with both media promos and information materials.
With a National Film Board apprenticeship grant, I was graced with the mentorship of film producer, Kirk Shaw. Being at Insight Film Studios showed me how television and films were generated from the ground up. I’ve also done research work as well as acted as script consultant for various documentaries and am always eager to provide my services in a field I have always had a deep respect for. Prior to film, as part of the Vancouver Women In View Recommender Prize, I was offered by Kathleen Weiss (Chair of Department of Drama, University of Alberta) one year of dramaturgy which allowed me to take a short story and craft it into a play “Fly On the Wall” which later was a finalist for the Canadian National Play Competition. As a writer that had early beginnings with film scripts and play writing, I can offer services as proof reader or story consultant for your short or feature film.
I have also done proof reading and ghost writing for people who are working on both fiction and memoir based projects. Do contact me for any inquiries. I am all about finding the right fit as writing projects can take anywhere between one to twelve months, and it is vital for the evolution of your work that there be the best synergy possible.
I am always open and happy to hear about your pet project and will give a free half hour consultation which may stretch even further if there is something that takes us in a productive direction!
