My career in television began at YTV as a researcher for the YTV Achievement Awards. I was soon promoted to co-writer, and over the next 4 years was a staff writer for various in-house YTV programs, specials and also contributed as a copywriter and web content provider. I created and wrote the comic strip Sponge and Stone which ran for nearly 9 years in YTV Whoa Magazine. In 2000 I accepted a promotion to the On-Air Promotions Department, with a focus on YTV, Treehouse, Nickolodeon Canada, Discovery Kids, CMT and other networks. In 2007 I also created, wrote and produced 36 episodes of the YTV web series Unlucky Caveman which also aired on the YTV network during “The Zone” after-school block.
