I have written thousands of words for print and pixel and have more than 20 years of experience writing about business, information technology and innovation in a variety of roles, including journalist, editor, public relations consultant and corporate communicator.
I am a regular contributor to several publications in Canada and worldwide. Publications of note include IT World Canada, writing about technology trends and issues that affect CIOs and IT managers, such as cloud computing, data centre management and enterprise storage. I have also been a regular contributor to EE Times for more than three years with a focus on memory and flash storage technologies, and I was recently the interim editor-in-chief of its sister publication, EBN, which covers the end-to-end electronics supply chain for a global readership. My articles have also appeared in itbusiness.ca Network Computing, Information Week, Computing Canada, Computer Dealer, the Ottawa Citizen and the Winchester Press, among others.
A journalist by training, I apply this background to a variety of projects for corporate clients, transferring the short and pithy style of newspapers to blogs, case studies, thought leadership articles and whitepapers. I have also written a great deal of content for web sites and in support of digital communications such as email and social media campaigns.
A native of rural eastern Ontario, I have lived in Ottawa, Edmonton and Vancouver and currently reside in Toronto, where I enjoy constructing Lego, collecting comic books and cooking.
