I am a communications specialist who is passionate about politics, global issues and film. I have experience working on a variety of film projects including videos for the City of Edmonton and the Government of Canada. I am currently a crew member of the Baikal Archaeology Documentary Project which has taken me to remote locations in Russia for filming.
I also have experience creating and managing the marketing department for a popular Mexican restaurant that is rapidly expanding. During my tenure, I tripled the amount of followers they had on Instagram, unveiled a line of bottled sauces and wearable merchandise, and redesigned their menus and website.
