Growing up, I was inherently curious about all things fashion. I pursued journalism on a whim, but in the back of my mind, working for a magazine has always been something I could envision myself doing.
Fashion made its way into my reporting scope after interning with FAJO Magazine, while completing an honours bachelor of journalism degree at Carleton University. Covering Ottawa’s fashion week, where I briefly met Lucian Matis, as well as profiling emerging talents and working as a photographer are among my experience highlights.
I see fashion as a constant inspiration and, often, a means of expression. Designs have the ability to say a lot about people and even the periods they’re from.
I’m always amazed at the places journalism takes me: from pop-up art exhibits in the streets of Ottawa, to lavish galas for good causes. It’s a world of the unexpected, but I’m always excited for my next assignment.
In my time off, I love exploring different cities: finding local markets or quirky boutiques, especially with my camera in tow. Yet, I am just as happy to spend an afternoon at home pouring over my vinyl collection, attempting sewing projects or learning a new song on the ukulele!
