Given that the web is an increasingly visual medium, I’ve deliberately chosen not to post samples of the speeches, reports and other written genres that comprise so much of my work. Please contact me and I’ll gratefully provide relevant samples. On this page, you can screen a few recent videos that I’ve written and produced, grouped by client.

In 2012, The Canadian Broadcasting Corporation staged a series of town-hall discussions (From Headlines to History) in Ottawa as part of its 75th anniversary celebrations. I was contracted to produce a series of short bilingual videos to set up the discussions and was given extensive access to CBC archives. As a bit of a hockey nut, it was real treat to work on this one.
