Hello, I'm Joe. I’m a freelance writer and editor. I can research, report, self-edit, and file under deadline. I can also proofread and translate English and French text.
As of September 2019, I teach writing and editing at Algonquin College in the Journalism program. I also publish an almost-monthly newsletter called T'es Capab' to show my work and encourage readers to do the same.
As a journalist I report on issues and events of all kinds — anything that makes up the human experience. I often contribute to the Carleton Newsroom, Delve by McGill, and Mountain Life. I was the Editor of Where Ottawa for two years. My work has also appeared in The Ottawa Citizen, Ottawa Showbox, Ottawa Magazine, Interchange, Inside Track, Capital, Ottawa Business Journal, Quill & Quire, and Exclaim!.
As a commercial writer I work for clients who want to better promote their projects or to simplify complicated but essential messages. I ghostwrite articles of persuasion and help businesses communicate with their target audiences.
