Over the past few years, I've have the opportunity to write for a number of different publications, across a number of different roles. From writing about fashion for The Main, to being a content curator at IX Daily, to finally being the Executive Editor of a McGill campus publication, The Bull & Bear, I've had multiple excuses to introduce myself as a "Writer" at cocktail parties.
Through this varied experience, I've been able to experiment with different writing forms, including: lifestyle posts, event coverage, traditional news articles, satire pieces, opinion columns, and long-form interviews. Blogging is pretty chill too, I guess. Interesting fact: I once had my own fashion blog (or maybe three of them), and – enviously – longed to be the male Tavi Gevinson!
If you dig my writing, feel free to reach out about freelancing!
Below is a limited selection of pieces I've published:
This show review sought to highlight the similarities and differences among a group of local acts whose sounds ranged from Indie-folk to electronic Free Jazz by way of Electro-Soul – thus offering window into the diversity of musical styles that abound in Montreal.
Both of these articles were written as part of a promotional agreement with evenko, and sought to prioritize local Montreal artists while also showcasing the diversity of talent present at the festival.
This review of a 2014 McGill production of the seminal play sought to explore the failings of the original piece by highlighting its problematic rooting in exclusionary white feminism, and its lack of an intersectional approach in depicting femininity.
This satirical piece was written to serve as a gentle reminder that the topic of summer internships is one that is fraught with competitive tension among Business school students (i.e. the most cutthroat sharks-in-the-making).
This feature interview sought to explore the state of Hip Hop at McGill, and to uncover the reasons why this genre has traditionally been shunned in an academic and elitist space like McGill.
This feature article sought to investigate the practical and theoretical reasons behind the lack of female involvement on the 2014-2015 Executive Council for McGill University's Management Undergraduate Society.
