I am a communicator and advocate driven to make a difference.

Good writers have spark and an eye for every detail. I write for diverse audiences and make your messaging relevant and extraordinary.

I am a communicator, activist, and organizer from Sudbury, Ontario,  in Atikameksheng Anishnawbek traditional territory. I have spent my career building a fairer Canada, building messages that advance public dialogue. I have worked on and around Parliament Hill over the past half decade, advocating and building on a wide array of issues ranging from post-secondary education to ocean health and the fisheries sector to healthcare to intellectual property reform. My work has impact from the neighbourhood level to the national political stage.

When people ask me what I do, my reply is usually “yes.” You can rely on my wide suite of skills, including strategic communications, media relations and coaching, copywriting, event management, and political organizing, to meet your media, public exposure, and corporate social responsibility objectives.

I hold a Masters of Political Management (MPM) from Carleton University in Ottawa, as well as a BA in Communication Studies at Laurentian University and an Advanced Diploma in Public Relations from Cambrian College, both in Sudbury. I split my time between Ottawa and Sudbury.

Mike introduced himself to me as an eager 1st year student looking to have a positive impact on his program and the students of Cambrian College. By his final year, Mike was the Vice President of the Cambrian Students’ Administrative Council and an intern in the College Advancement office. His effort is genuine…his enthusiasm infectious. Cambrian students have enjoyed our strongest start-up in years, a real credit to Mike’s efforts, along with the rest of our student leadership team. Mike has benefited from a truly hands-on program, and taken those valuable skills learned in the classroom and deployed them in a real-world setting with success.

Mike is an exceptional young man who's attention to detail and willingness to involve himself have made him an indispensable addition to several committees as the College Student Alliance. I would strongly recommend Mike for any leadership role where his dedication to team dynamic, commitment to task and strong facilitating skills may be put to use.
