Formerly a Canadian sports reporter and producer in my home and native land of Canada, I spent many years working in both radio and TV helping to tell sports stories.

In 2000, I joined the world of Communications and Public/Media Relations with a public relations agency and then various IndyCar Series racing teams, spending more than a decade traveling the globe to watch men and women push their human limits in race cars going as fast as 242 mph. I helped tell their stories.

In 2012, I joined Fiat Chrysler Automobiles (FCA) as Senior Manager for the Mopar brand to lead their automotive corporate and motorsports communications.

My duties took me across the country to automotive industry events and drag strips. I was charged with managing their NHRA (National Hot Rod Association) communications with racecars that go 330.470 mph in 3.897 seconds in just 1000 feet. I was responsible for creating opportunities to connect and tell stories about fast, cool-looking, and racy vehicles.

In 2016, I returned to IndyCar for the 100th anniversary of the Indianapolis 500, to work with an amazing communications team on the sanctioning-body side of the sport to share driver and team stories from both on and off the track.

In 2019, I launched PCap Communications to be able to work with multiple clients. Since then, I have worked with the Indiana Dept. of Revenue on a four-year modernization project called Project NextDOR, Stellantis' Dodge//SRT brand managing their NHRA program, and Firestone Racing in IndyCar to tell their stories.

My life and many adventures are shared with a feisty little Cairn Terrier named Miss Izzy, and her giant fuzzball Leonberger sidekicks named Miss Yogi and Higgins. Thanks to them, I have a lot of great dog stories to share.

I love to take photos. It is my way of telling a story without words.

I'm a foodie at heart. I can be found pursuing underwater adventures, and likely on the road to another new destination. I make time to visit my family in Canada which includes a 28-year-old multi-lingual and very talkative African Grey Parrot named Reno.

I have told stories as a journalist and a PR/media relations and communications specialist, with the written word, photos, and through digital and social media in 140 characters or less.

There is always a good story to tell.

And I’d love to help tell the stories you want to share with the world.
