media relations and Motorsports PR in Indianapolis, Indiana
Formerly a Canadian sports reporter in my home and native land of Canada, I spent many years working in both radio and TV helping to tell sports stories.
I joined the world of Public / Media Relations and IndyCar racing in 2000, spending another decade traveling the globe watching men & women push their human limits and those of cars going as fast as 242 mph (389.46125 km/h). I helped tell their stories.
I also spent a few years work for Fiat Chrysler Automobiles (FCA) in Auburn Hills, Michigan, in the Communications department as the Mopar and Mopar Motorsports PR & Media Manager which took me to plenty of drag strips with the NHRA (to smell nitro and see cars going 330.470 mph (531.84 km/h) in 3.897 seconds in just 1000 feet!), as well as a lot of fun car shows, so I could tell stories about lots of fast and cool looking racy vehicles.
I'm now back to my IndyCar roots working on the league side. Rather than tell the story from one team or driver's perspective, I'm now getting to tell all their stories from both on and off the track.
My life and many adventures are shared with a feisty Cairn Terrier known as Miss Izzy. Thanks to her, I have a lot of great dog stories to share.
I always have a camera with me. It is my way of telling a story without words.
I think of myself as a foodie. I can be found on top of a rock formation, underwater, on motorized two wheels, and likely on the road to another adventure. But I always try to make time to visit my family and flock of feathered friends, including a two talkative African Grey Parrots named Reno and Zooey.
I have told stories as a journalist, a PR/media relations & communications specialist, and through social media in 140 characters or less.
This is my life, my story, and my collection of stories gathered along the way... I (ALWAYS) have a story to tell.
