The Oslo Opera House | Oslo, 2018

Thanks for visiting my little corner of the internet! I started this blog in 2013 as a way to reconnect with my creativity after business school where I was, unfortunately, not all that creative. It’s taken on many forms over the years, but mostly it’s been a place to talk about what I’m making, to explore my family’s creative history, and to share my photo journals.

More recently, I started a newsletter to share what I’m learning personally and professionally as a self-employed creative (you can sign up for that here!).

Speaking of being self-employed, I’m a marketing communications consultant and freelance writer here in Toronto, Canada. I’m also the founder of Build Creative, a business education platform for creatives, and Craft Uncommon, an interview project dedicated to celebrating makers who are uncommonly good at their craft.

If you have any questions or are looking to get in touch, you can connect with me here.


  1. Love the blog so far- can’t wait to see more! I saw your eyelet knit top on Kollabora and followed the link. What was your major in college?

    1. Thank you so much!! I studied international business with a minor in econ, and did a one year international relations program on exchange. May I never have to write an essay again haha.

      1. What a coincidence- I’m an econ major! And next year I’m planning on studying abroad in South Korea for one semester.

        1. Wow! What an incredible experience that will be!! I’ve heard lots of good things about SK, Seoul in particular. Would love to go one day too.

  2. Hi Kate!
