I work with clients to strategize and implement effective internal and external communications. I produce white papers, annual reports, speeches, marketing materials, website and blog content, and full-length books. I have edited, proofed, and fact-checked innumerable articles and documents, including for clients, media outlets, and academic journals.
Some of my work in communications is in the fields of corporate social responsibility, social purpose, and ethics. I facilitate workshops and seminars to inform an organizational understanding of CSR, research and design CSR programs and policy, and help clients communicate CSR programs to stakeholders. I work with organizational leaders on effective communication of vision and values.
I offer publishing and ghostwriting services through my company Bookends Writing, mainly for companies and businesspeople writing books for business. I help business leaders tell the story of their company and narrate its mission and reason for being.
I also specialize in media relations, building out of my experience as a journalist and in previous roles that involved engaging the media ecosystem. I write for CBC, Ricochet, and The Independent NL, among others. My journalism often takes up issues to do with current affairs. I put together a collection of work in a book project, Everyday Dissent. I am currently compiling another book based on my journalism focused on the COVID19 pandemic.
Along with practical work in the field, I study and contribute to the scholarship of communication. I was elected as a scholar with the International Communicology Institute in 2012 for my work in the philosophical fields of semiotics and phenomenology. My specific interest is the ontology of language and communication.
