As a freelancer, I’ve been a regular contributor to The Toronto Star’s Life section where I write about decorating, trends, entertaining, DIY projects and the "maker" scene in Canada. I also produce, photograph, style and write original visual content for the Life section.

I'm a lifestyle blogger and from time to time work with brands to write sponsored posts and product reviews on my blog Paper Parade Co. , where I've worked with brands such as Minted and Staples.

Does your website, brand or publication need beautiful, original content? Let's chat.



I love working with clients to freshen up their homes. I offer smaller scale a la carte services to homeowners who need help pulling a room together on a budget. Whether it's help showcasing the pieces that you currently own and love (ie: bookcase styling), pulling your vision together with an inspiration board and shopping list, or you're looking for someone to dream up, plan and shop for your home because you just don't have the time, I offer design services to suit your needs.
