"For 10 years, I was known as the go-to-person to get your book published. It was a job description I invented that didn’t exist. As a result, I worked on over 150 books for self-published authors and traditional publishers, including a few bestsellers. I personally wrote and published 17 books, many from behind the scenes of pro and elite sports from the player/staff/media perspective.I conducted numerous workshops, training sessions, and keynotes on how to use digital media to improve literacy, marketing, and create products with.  

Over the years, I have interviewed over 3,000 professional athletes during my career as a sports reporter and written thousands of articles for the Calgary Herald and other publications.

Using my media, copywriting, publishing, and journalism background, I’ve also planned and managed several high-profile events and helped create earned media for numerous projects."
