Editing/Writing

x. Experience
Throughout my career, I have worked for both business-to-business and consumer publications. My areas of expertise include fitness and health (consumer and B2B), electric utilities (B2B), travel (consumer), and wrestling (consumer).

Fitness & Health (consumer/B2B): One of the highlights of my career was working at Maximum Fitness Magazine, a men’s health publication made famous by the late Robert Kennedy. As the magazine’s Senior Editor, I provided content to men on fitness, nutrition, and health. Additionally, I worked as Senior Managing Editor for Rive Gauche Media, the publisher of  VivaMagOnlinea woman’s natural health magazine, and Integrated Health Resources, a magazine serving Canada’s natural health retailers. My duties for Rive Gauche included writing and editing content for print and online products.

Electric UtilitiesFor over five years, I had the honour of working with Hurst Communications, a small company that specializes in serving Canada’s power industry. I was the Editor-in-Chief for the company’s three magazines: Electricity Today (electric utilities), Electrical Source (electrical professionals in industrial buildings), and Intelligent Power Today (digital electricity). I managed the company’s overall publishing operations and supervised staff to ensure seamless production. I worked with the designer to ensure that all published content was visually appealing with a suitable design, which included compelling—yet relevant—images, format, and font. Once set deadlines were met, I performed the final review to ensure signed off content excelled industry standards.

Travel/Living AbroadI lived in Taipei, the capital city of Taiwan,  for two years freelancing as a travel writer and working full-time as an English teacher.

Wrestling: I’ve been a loyal wrestling fan for almost 20 years.  I have written profiles on AJ Styles (now with WWE), Claudio Castagnoli (Cesaro in WWE), and former TNA wrestler Christopher Daniels.  I also co-authored an article with Canadian journalist Victor Penney about fantasy wrestling for Broken Pencil Magazine.
