The Den

Growing up, we had a room in our house that was designated as a catch-all: a place to store things forgotten that you weren’t ready to forget, a place to iron clothes, and a place to hide Christmas presents from prying eyes… It’s also where a majority of our houseplants, in varying stages of theirContinue reading “The Den”

Pileated Maple.. Maybe

In Brief: Branding

In my real life, I engineer content – strategically – in order to create awareness for a brand or a brand’s endeavour. I work with companies to map out their journey by getting their widget and their message out in front of the crowd to help them take critical steps towards their success.

An Unavoidable Pile Of Breadcrumbs

The universe is so vast that it’s incredible that anything connects – let alone if multiple things connect. But they do.
