Weekly Substack Newsletter

Put You On Game is my Substack newsletter/passion project where I break down the ways that strategy and branding appears in many aspects of life. Here’s what that phrase means.

It’s mostly about (social media) marketing, but I also love pop culture, food, photography, technology and more; I'll talk about all of those things as they pertain to online life and real life. It’s also where I work out some thoughts that I start on my social feeds, share with my clients, and talk about with my friends.

"Yes, #WEHaveaproblem, and it's not just because of Trudeau"

Following a viral Twitter thread I wrote in the midst of the June 2020 WE Charity scandal involving the federal government, I was commissioned to write about how my thesis work related to the issue and what Canadians should look for when non-profits appear to act in self-interest rather than the greater good.

Canadian Business, February 2022

I interviewed marketer and podcaster Stephen Dorsey about his book "Black and White", writing about his theory that "white advantage" is the main barrier to racial equality in Canada and affects many aspects of everyday life, including the workplace.
