My experience runs the gamut. My skill set is truly varied and unique. At the heart of ALL my endeavours – I am at my core a communicator.
As a performer and broadcaster – I recognize the elements that go into a successful presentation.
As an independent artist, I negotiated contracts, booked backup bands, hired crew, and planned tours – from outdoor weekend festivals with thousands of concert goers to intimate soft-seater theatres.
As the remote host/producer of multiple morning shows, both in radio and television, I have covered everything from theatre productions and sporting events to community festivities and rock shows. I have seen first hand what it takes from every perspective – backstage, front of house, and behind the scenes.
As a producer, writer and editor with over 4 seasons of visual story telling I thrive on creating programs that are informative, entertaining and truly fun to watch.
As a marketer and event planner – my clients ranged from multi-national organizations like Pepsi and Rubbermaid to very small start-ups. I appreciate the need to get the message out in a strategic and timely fashion, and at the same time have the business acumen to understand the importance of doing so as cost-effectively as possible. I have managed everything from national broadcast campaigns to corporate video production, executive weekend retreats to week-long national conferences with thousands of delegates. I thrive at working with and meeting deadlines, be it as part of a big team, or going it solo. I’m no stranger to hard work and have always enjoyed an ever-changing environment.
As a huge promoter of Canada’s East Coast – I celebrate the personalities and places that make this corner of the world so special. I recognize how critical it is to tell the stories and raise awareness for the region, building the profile of the artists and businesses both within Atlantic Canada and around the world.
For over 13 years now, I have been celebrating the four Atlantic Provinces on my website SeaAndBeScene.com and in 2020, expanded that celebration to the EastCoastCurator.com
My skills in social media marketing are very strong, as are my talents for content creation, development, and design.
I am a people person with a tremendously strong work ethic. I am constantly creating and promoting, and thrive on challenge.
I have worked successfully within organizations of hundreds and small firms of less than 10 – including my office of one here at Rae of Hope Productions.

I should tell you too – that I love what I do – all of it! And there are still plenty of developments on the horizon.
For a people person like me these are exciting times! sb
