hi, I'm Gillian
creative communications professional
what I do
professional video production
I specialize in documentary style character driven storytelling, illustrating the impact of your work in the lives of real people. I am proficient in every stage of the production process, with the capacity to produce high quality videos entirely on my own, or working collaboratively with a team.
content creation & copywriting
I provide graphic design, photography, and copywriting services to create meaningful print and digital content in alignment with your strategic priorities.
Researching and developing a strategic communications approach that is appropriate for your organization's goals, objectives, and resources.
commitment to social impact
I work with non-profits, social enterprise, and development organizations that are making a positive impact in local communities and around the globe.
why I do it
In all that I do, I am motivated by the potential to make a meaningful impact in my community and as a responsible global citizen. With a background in international development and a wealth of experience living and working across the globe, I bring a unique perspective to the work that I do.
I have an Honours Bachelor of Commerce, MA in Globalization and International Development and have worked in Ottawa with the Canadian International Development Agency (CIDA, now Global Affairs Canada), development organizations in East and West Africa and South America, as well as community-based organizations here in Canada.
I have over ten years experience creating visual and written narratives, bringing a keen sense of creativity and attention to detail to every project that I work on. Through my fieldwork and travels I uncovered my natural ability to engage with people of all walks of life. I now use my aptitude for storytelling as a tool for breaking down social and cultural barriers.
