I am a writer, blogger, and social media enthusiast. I'm the owner of Lucid Communication, a consulting firm in Victoria, B.C. My services include ESL support, translation, business consulting for, but not limited to, Japanese clients.
I'm passionate about engaging with people and adding the personal touch.
I'm also a co-host of an online show focusing on engagement: "Getting Engaged - Online, In Life, and At Work"
I'm very active on social media platforms and have worked with companies such as Disney, Ogilvy and Mather, Dove and Post on their social media activation as one of Canada's most influential bloggers. I have also contributed to numerous magazines and newspapers in Japan and The Guardian in the UK, having been mentioned in various books as one of the key Japanese bloggers in North America.
As one of the brand ambassadors for All Nippon Airways, I have traveled to Japan to introduce ANA's cabin service, Inspiration of Japan in 2012, and also promoted Okinawa prefecture in spring 2013. You can read all about my adventures on my blog.
