Cognos Performance 2006


I've done a handful of videos over the years for Canada's largest software company, Cognos -- based in Ottawa. Just went to Chicago to interview a rep from one of their biggest customers, IBM. It's all part of series of videos that will be shown as part of their annual, 30 city road show, including a high octane "meeting opener".

Lifetime Electronic Press Kit


For U.S. network “Lifetime”, I did some behind the scenes shooting on the set of their new TV movie, “Why I wore Lipstick to my Mastectomy”, currently shooting in Toronto, and starring Sarah Chalke. The highlight was an opportunity to do a quiet, sit down interview with Patti Labelle, who has a key supporting role, and has personally lost three sisters to cancer.

Heads Across Canada


A group of U of Toronto medical students started cycling across the country in May of this year. Beginning in Vancouver, they finally hit the streets of Ottawa today. They are promoting national charity ThinkFirst, as well as the insurance industry's Be Smart Be Safe campaign. Their message is one of injury prevention, and they are encouraging everyone in their path to wear a helmet. A great way to spend a summer! I'm creating a video of their journey, now updated every few days and shown at press conferences as they make their way to the east coast.
