Kew Beach Public School Solar Energy Project: Funded by the Ontario Government and managed by the Beach Community Energy Cooperative in east Toronto.

I was approached in August, 2016 to help produce a promotional video for the Kew Beach solar installation. The video was shown at the launch event in conjunction with Green Energy Doors Open. This is a condensed version incorporating drone footage and a 12-hour time-lapse of the panel construction.

The Power of Rail: SWOTA & MP Irene Mathyssen present Network Southwest at Western University  [Student Project]

In the fall of 2016, I organized a presentation at Western University for the Southwestern Ontario Transportation Alliance (SWOTA) and guest speaker MP Irene Mathyssen. The objective was to increase student involvement in regional advocacy.

I created this video as a student project, which was shared on SWOTA’s Facebook Page and across Western media channels for two days. The video had over 4.3k views with 21% people engaged during that time.

Bus rapid transit route proposal, London Ontario: GPS rendering  [Personal Project]

While working as Special Assistant to London Councillor Jesse Helmer, I re-created the proposed North-East rapid transit route by converting the GPS path to video format. I did this to demonstrate how Google Earth can help map and measure key locations on and off the route. There is room to overlay audio/visual for key messaging.

The route begins at Masonville Mall, passing through Western University and Downtown on its way to Fanshawe College using exclusive transit lanes free of traffic. Enjoy the ride!

I can write too! I’ve written content for web, print and digital platforms. What have I learned? Effective message strategies take time, planning, research and caffein.
