I couldn’t decide whether to make a page about my hobbies or my work, so I decided to make a page about how I spend my time.
I am a member and the unofficial west coast liaison of StartupNL, a business community and event organizer in Newfoundland, Canada.
From their website:
This group is for both experienced and new entrants. We will share knowledge, provide advice, help find investment and the resources your business requires. The group will use our collective experience and expertise to build great enterprises. If you have a start up or are about to start one, we look forward to meeting you.
As part of StartupNL, I host monthly Coffee Club meetups with (potential) entrepreneurs in Corner Brook, attend events put off by the community, and help connect people within and outside of the group who can help each other.
In June of 2015 I attended Startup Week and Startup Weekend hosted by StartupNL in St. John’s. It was a week of valuable hands-on experience building/planning a business, getting advice from experienced mentors, and meeting some great people and business contacts.
It was a great time, and I would happily do it again.
When I look back at my time in high school, my fondest memories are of my friends and I doing video projects for our English class assignments. The first one was extremely daunting, and was filmed using an unsophisticated VHS tape. Over time we got better, and took on loftier goals.
The following YouTube playlist is a collection of some of the more recent videos.
I love to write, and I love my city. Writing for CornerBrooker.com has allowed to me to meet new people, experience new things, and develop a critical eye for my surroundings that I may otherwise take for granted.
The following playlist encompasses other videos that I’ve been a part of as work or hobby.
The short films are the result of workshops I participated in under the St. John’s International Women’s Film Festival (SJIWFF), called FRAMED West. Budding filmmakers get the chance to experience the process of a script becoming a finished film, under guidance by mentors from different areas of the filmmaking craft. I really enjoyed my time doing this, it was a great way to peek behind the curtain into that world. I hope to do it again (if they’ll let me).
The other project is a promotional video for my local Special Olympics team, of which I am the Communications Director. I facilitated, directed, and interviewed for this video, and am proud of the end result.
