I started with the Trend Hunter team as a Journalism/Social Media Intern in July 2013. In my current role as a Contributing Editor I get to pursue my passion for writing and find innovative ideas on the internet. As a political science graduate from the University of Western Ontario and former social enterprise employee, I'm interested in human rights, the environment and making the world a better place. I also love good storytelling, tea time, Wes Anderson movies and sweet dance moves.
