TL;DR

KP

IT ALL BEGAN WITH NEW YORK’S WHITEHOT MAGAZINE – MY FIRST PAID GIG AND ONE OF SEVERAL PRINT PUBLICATIONS IN MY CAREER. TASTEMAG CAME NEXT AND SOON, I WAS FINDING MY STRIDE AS A FOOD, ARTS AND CULTURE WRITER.

 

AT FIRST, COPYWRITING WAS A SIDE HUSTLE. IN FACT, IT TOOK 4 YEARS FREELANCING BEFORE I LANDED THE CMO POSITION AT iDEVICES. BUT IN 12 SHORT MONTHS, WE TOOK THE COMPANY'S FIRST PRODUCT FROM PROTOTYPE TO MARKET, AND ONTO THE SHELVES OF APPLE STORES ACROSS THE US.

MORE WINS FOLLOWED. SCREENPLAYS, TOO AND SUDDENLY, I FOUND MYSELF IN THE ENTERTAINMENT INDUSTRY. A GIG FOR HISTORY TV LED TO A CONTRACT AT GUN LAKE PICTURES, WHERE I DEVELOPED TV CONTENT AND PITCHED SHOWS IN VANCOUVER BC, WASHINGTON DC AND EVEN HOLLYWOOD.

I'VE BEEN BACK IN THE AGENCY WORLD FOR A FEW YEARS. FIRST, AS A CONTENT STRATEGIST FOR A 3-YEAR STRETCH AT IDEA REBEL, THEN AT COSSETTE WHERE I WORK TODAY, WRITING ADS AND COMMS FOR THE CANADIAN TELCO, TELUS.
