About

Hi. And thanks for visiting.

I’m currently working towards a Joint Honours Bachelor of Arts in History and Political Sciences with French Immersion and Co-operative Education options. As of late, I have been fortunate enough to have my academic interests mirror my professional ones: Indigenous studies. I am currently employed as a Junior Analyst / Research Assistant at Aboriginal Affairs and Northern Development Canada (AANDC). I’ve experienced and learned so much through my multiple placements with AANDC – I discovered a passion I didn’t know I had. I’m loving every moment of it.

Writing is best done with no deadline; only interest and passion to serve as guides. Unfortunately, this isn’t always the case. The mind adapts. I find words magical. As a child, books were my retreat from the harsh realities of the school playground – the bullies and cliques. Books transported me far beyond my experiences – I can only hope to one day have the same influence on someone else. Writing was always an outlet, a way to express myself. It still is. I have a goal to dedicate more time to creative writing.

Photography fascinates me due to its ability to capture more than what the naked eye can see. The richness of a properly exposed frame. The sharpness of a moment, frozen and captured. The ability to pick up a million tiny details that your mind can’t possibly take in all at once. Not to mention, the feeling of contentment when a shot turns out just right. I chase that adrenaline high.

First and foremost, I’m a student. I hope I can always say that – I hope I am always learning and pushing myself further. This site, if anything, is meant to be an online portfolio of two of my passions – writing and photography.
They are passions that I do largely on a freelance or volunteer basis. That being said, if you’re in need of event or portrait photography, do drop me a line.
