Hey there! I’m Kate. I’m a writer, marketer, consultant, and financial planner living in Toronto, Canada. I make things and put (some of) them online.
I work here, *points above*, at the intersection of money, marketing, and makers. I built my career helping early-stage startups in Toronto and New York establish their content marketing, customer acquisition, and community strategies. I was often the first marketing hire and anything that looked or smelled even marketing-adjacent got sent my direction (appologies to the ad campaigns that relied on my graphic design skills). Then,
because I’m a huge nerd, a few years ago I got a graduate certificate in financial planning and my FPSC Level 1. I kept seeing how inaccessible finance was for creatives and I wanted to help bridge that gap. Now, I get to offer this cool mash up of marketing and money support for creatives in business, and help tech brands do the same.
I’m currently building something new (more on that soon!). After years of helping people build their businesses, it’s feeling empowering to put that energy toward my own.
I’m into craft. Like, really into craft. I have 3 sewing machines (including an industrial Juki DDL5530 that weighs about half as much as I do), a Leclerc floor loom, a spinning wheel, and a bag of knitting needles that I won’t hesitate to shake in your general direction.
I love taking photos of old things and making new things, which I tend to share on Instagram.
