Writing

In the last 2 years I've conducted and written close to 100 interviews with a variety of professionals in the creative and tech industries. I've written and edited multiple pieces on teams large and small. In addition I've written copy for newsletters, social media, and blogs for the last 4 years.
I'm actively looking for freelance opportunities in these areas.

CONTENT MARKETING & STORYTELLING

Through Ways We Work I've had the opportunity to tell the stories of teams large and small. I have a knack for discovering and sharing a company's authentic story through various mediums and content. If you're interested in collaborating, get in touch!

Web Design

I've been designing and developing websites for small businesses and startups for the past 3 years. If you're looking to get started on a new website or refresh a current one, I'd love to hear from you.

Here's some projects I've designed and/or developed for:

Ways We Work - Stories and first-hand accounts of how people do meaningful work
Elora Brewing Co. - Craft beer in the heart of Elora
Charcoal Group - A passionate hospitality group
 


Nice things people have said...

"I have had the pleasure of working closely with Amandah for many years on small and large scale projects. Her work is thoughtful, strategic and executed beautifully. She goes into a project fearlessly and will do everything in her power - including learning new skills - to complete the vision. I am always searching for ways to collaborate with her, as she is such a valuable asset to any project. It is rare to find a multidisciplinary creative as talented and driven as Amandah."

-Cindy Perri, Brand Manager at Charcoal Group

"Amandah joined and embraced our fast-growing organization as our Kitchener-Waterloo Chapter Lead. She was instrumental in launching and building our community of learners and mentors, all passionate and engaged with our mission of teaching women and youth 21st century technical skills in a social and collaborative way. She invested her time tirelessly to organize, market and execute events for women and girls working with local tech companies, donors, volunteers and community leaders to expand our reach in the region. Amandah laid a strong foundation in Kitchener-Waterloo and we're thankful to have had the opportunity to work with her. Amandah is an absolute pleasure to work with and I would recommend her highly to anyone who has the opportunity to work with her!"
