I’m a Canadian freelance writer, B2B copywriter, and blogger specializing in digital marketing and technology for business, personal finance, and real estate.
I enjoy explaining technology to business and marketing types and business and marketing to technology folks. That degree in Psychology and Computer Science is finally coming in handy.
As a former financial advisor with over a decade of experience in banking, I also write about mortgages, money management, investments, and retirement planning for Canadian and American audiences.
I run the website Avamum, and have written two e-books released by Hyperink Publishing: Build Your Brand With Pinterest and Instagram: How a Photo-Sharing App Achieved a $1 Billion Facebook Buyout in 18 Months.
I graduated from the University of Guelph where I studied Psychology and Computer Science, and I hold the Personal Financial Planning designation from the Institute of Canadian Bankers.
