I have started a new job. As of June 2nd, I am an online editor at Zoomer Media. My responsibilities will include updating and publishing digital content for the company’s four television stations and social media platforms. I will be researching and writing original articles, reviews and synopses to complement the stations’ programming. I am also looking forward to getting involved in ideacity, the annual ideas conference that attracts thinkers, writers, and scientists from all over the world.
Last Friday was CIBC’s Client Appreciation Day. I was working on the digital side with CIBC and FUSE Marketing to show appreciation over social media.
The Transgender Project has been nominated for a CSA in the category of ‘Best Original Program or Series produced for Digital Media – Non-Fiction’. It’s a great web series that attempts to create positive transgender stories in the media.
I helped to develop the project’s website and social platforms while serving as the digital strategist and community manager. It’s very nice to see the project recognized in this manner. If you haven’t seen it, visit the site here.
Season 2 is currently in development. It picks up with our subjects a year later and has a new look and tone. You’ll be able see new content in just two weeks! Check back at the end of January.
CIBC has partnered with FUSE Marketing Group to create a branded lounge in Pearson Airport.
It’s part of a larger campaign to surprise and delight travelers with gifts and experiences to improve their holiday travel. I’m happy to be working with FUSE as the community manager of this project, identifying travelers and communicating with them on social media.
I’ve been working on iChannel’s No Kidding, and its web series spinoff Inside Joke for over a year. I perform a number of roles on the show (community manager, content manager, digital strategist) but I one of my favourite jobs is designing web banners for new episodes of Inside Joke.
Each episode explores an important issue. Here are a few banners from the past year.
I perform a multi-function role on the show, serving as the digital strategist, community manager, editor, and web writer. Having the show recognized for its interactivity and cross-platform structure is therefore a real treat.
Winners will be announced on March 1st, 2013.
