I'm a Creator
I'm an entrepreneur. I'm a videographer. I'm a photographer. I'm a songwriter. I'm a marketer. I'm a wannabe mixologist. I'm a social media manager. I'm a blogger. I'm a project manager. I'm a musician. I'm a producer. I'm a speaker. I'm a brand strategist. I'm a problem solver. I'm a podcaster. I'm an amateur cook. I'm a networker. I'm a singer. I'm a vlogger. I'm a doer.
Born and raised in Calgary, I always had an innate passion to create. Since before I could speak I was singing along to whatever my mom had playing in the vehicle, including my personal favourite at the time, the "bop bop song" (better known as "Big Yellow Taxi" by Joni Mitchell). That passion has persisted to today to where I perform as one half of the pop country duo, Leaving Thomas by night and a digital content designer by day.
Throughout my grade school years, hockey was a priority. After having played two years of Jr. A hockey in the BCHL (British Columbia Hockey League) I decided that it was time to move on to the next chapter of my life. I had always been interested in photography, videography, graphic design, and business, so I started my first semester at Mount Royal University in the fall of 2012.
After graduating with a major in Marketing and a Minor in Innovation and Entrepreneurship I started my own Marketing Company, Vint Marketing, in the spring of 2016. Since then I have primarily been helping clients build their brands through creating brand systems, graphic design, videos, and social media strategies that tell the story of their brands.
As Vint Marketing began to grow, so did my music career with Leaving Thomas. In 2016, Leaving Thomas released it's first single, "Waiting Kind of Girl", which cracked the top 40 at country radio. Since then, we have had our music video for "Blame it on the Neon" featured on Country Music Television (CMT) US, had "Blame it on the Neon" featured on SiriusXM's "The Highway" and reached the top 20 at country radio! Leaving Thomas is currently touring and recording new music.
Currently I split my time between helping clients with their branding and digital content creation, performing and recording with Leaving Thomas and working on a startup, Play4Them, a fundraising platform focused on gamifying charitable events.
Throughout the past 8 years I have immersed myself in as many digital content mediums as I could. From Instagram and Snapchat, to Blogging for clients and Vlogging for Leaving Thomas, I have become comfortable with nearly every popular social media platform and content medium available.
Having worked with film, photography, blogging and social media scheduling early on, I was able to form a strong foundation of understanding of digital content creation and curation. Now, working with clients and Leaving Thomas' day to day digital media has deepened my understanding even more.
