I’m just a twenty-something writer and videographer who thinks someone out there might like to read what I think about things.
I got hooked on movies and TV (even the oldies) at a young age, and I soon became curious about how entertainment is made, from script to screen.
It wasn’t until high school that I found out how much I like to write. That was also when I caught the theatre bug – I performed in outdoor productions of the works of Shakespeare with a local company and did some short productions of sketch comedy with my high school drama club.
I went to Memorial University of Newfoundland for my Bachelor of Arts, where I studied English literature, Classics, history and philosophy (I know, I know, it sounds pretentious). While I was at MUN, I loved the courses that let me write essays about movies, and I even learned a thing or two about shooting and editing my own stuff.
When I graduated from Memorial, I figured I’d give journalism a try. So I joined the Master of Journalism program at Carleton University in Ottawa, Ontario. Now, with my two-year degree finished, I’ve moved back to the Toronto area to start a career in communications.
My idea to start Professionally Incoherent came when I found that I wanted my own place to share my thoughts on all the things I’m passionate about. I never expected how much fun it would be to interact with readers and other bloggers, and I’ve even had the chance to use the site to teach undergrad students how to blog.
I live and work in the city of Toronto, which is (among other things) the movie and television capital of Canada. My dream jobs include professional movie reviewing and documentary filmmaking, but for now, I’m building this site one post at a time.
