About Me

I’m Michaela – a creative professional.

I would say that my journey began back in 2017 – armed with several suitcases and freshly packed homemade lunch, I embarked on a flight from Toronto’s Pearson Airport to Vancouver, BC, unbeknownst to what lie ahead.

There, I began my career exploration. I found a home away from home at the University of British Columbia, where I recently graduated (May 2022) with a Bachelor of Arts (Major in Psychology and a Minor in Commerce, with Distinction). Through exploration of various artistic avenues, such as my freelance photography/videography work, I quickly discovered that there was a way for me to capitalize on my creative chops and passion for business: digital marketing. In an ever-evolving virtual world, being a creator was as important as ever – so I began to work.
