I am currently an Interactive Producer for CBC's Radio's fascinating Current Affairs and Arts programs. I help to create digital content and develop online strategies for up to 27 shows including Ideas, Under the Influence with Terry O'Reilly and Q with Jian Ghomeshi.

When I was part of the first graduating class of CCIT in 2005, the position I have today didn't even exist yet. In fact, my department has grown ten-fold, so I think the opportunities ICCIT graduates are still growing.

The internship program helped me get into CBC. Great CCIT Professors helped me work as a Research Assistant, and as the Manager for the campus Radio Station.

The CCIT program teaches you how to learn and turn around projects using many new programs quickly, which is key since the specific technologies are always changing. I was prepared for my job by CCIT courses in intellectual property and copyright, graphic design, digital photography, videography, editing, interactivity and user-centred design.
