I have years of experience working as an agile project manager in web development, particularly with Wordpress, Magento, and some custom projects. I also have limited experience with Shopify, Joomla, and OpenCart. I understand production of these sites from start to finish. I also oversee marketing, both SEO and SEM, and social media campaigns. Last, I'm a skilled editor and writer. Together these give me the background I've needed to give competent direction to projects, provide consultation, and take your dreams to the next level. I am available to work on large and small scale projects whether that's at the agency level, managing one or multiple projects at a time or taking your great idea for a project and working with you and your budget to bring it to fruition. Outside of my professional experience, I graduated with a degree in anthropology and philosophy, doing an honours in the former. That basically means that I wrote a really big thesis at the end of my degree which I conducted unique and independent research for.

I'm capable of working on advertisements, marketing pieces, mailers, letterhead, brochures, logos or any other materials that align with the vision and value of your business/organization.
