Local Ladies – Documentary

Local Ladies – Documentary

This weekend I was invited to sit down with Katie and Meghan, who created Local Ladies, a series all about telling women’s stories in the community.

Over the past three years, they’ve interviewed women and screened the short films to raise funds for Women in Crisis. I was interviewed for a feature documentary they will be screening in September.

Some of the other Local Ladies!


The Local Ladies mission is to shine a light on as many incredible women in the community as possible through interviews, collaboration videos, and *soon* a podcast.

Check out their Press for Progress video they created for International Women’s Day 2018.¬†The short film was then screened on March 8th at the Princess Twin in Uptown Waterloo.


The studio had great lighting so I took a bajillion selfies. I am also obsessed with this bright emoji yellow and will be wearing it from here on in. ūüėÜ

I’ll keep you posted on the premiere screening and other things surrounding the film! Find them¬†on Twitter @LocalLadies.


Thank you, Katie and Meghan, for the kind words and reaching out to include me in this great project. Happy to share my story and hopefully inspire some Local Ladies along the way!

My Job Rocks! TV -The Blogger Episode

My Job Rocks! TV -The Blogger Episode

Late last year I was asked to be on an episode of a teen-oriented tv show called My Job Rocks and the episode is out! It aired this week on WinHD TV and was available on Rogers Cable Channel 672 and Bell Fibe Channel 679.

The show introduces Canadian youth to potential and trending career paths they otherwise might not know exist.

I always like to remind younger people to follow what they love because the job they end up doing might now exist yet. Thanks to technology, so many new and unique jobs are being created in new industries.

Social media didn’t exist when I was in school but the things I’m doing now, writing, photography, travel, marketing, are all things I was into back then.

The show is actually pretty funny! I loved sitting down to chat about my work. There are 3 hosts and one of them is a little sock puppet named Maximus Fluffisness. In the show when I talk about travel writing he said he wanted to MARRY ME! That was the start of some witty banter and hilarity. The editing is well done and it was so fun shoot in a big studio.

the My Job Rocks crew for inviting me to be part of the show.

Influencer Marketing 101 w/ Casie Stewart – Incite Creative

A couple weeks ago I sat down with Stacey from Toronto based production studio Incite Creative Media, to have a candid chat about influencer marketing and how it really works. I think there are a lot of misconceptions about this whole new world of social media/influencer/brand partnerships so I shared some things I’ve learned over the years.

Stacey asked me a few more questions than you’ll find in this video so please LMK if you want to see more. I love talking about this stuff and think that’s the only way to build a better industry.

If you have any questions I’d love to know!¬†Comments are open!

Ever wondered where to start with Influencer Marketing? Well today we’ve got you covered with 6 insights from Toronto blogger + influencer Casie Stewart. From where to find them, to what you can expect to pay – it’s all here. Enjoy friends!¬† – Incite Creative Media¬†


We shot this at my fav local spot in the Junction Triangle (where I live), Drake Commissary. They have amazing food and the entire atmosphere is trés chic. Very Drake. I highly recommend the tomato salad, miso cauliflower, sweet potato walnut loaf, and the Sterling Road Tiramisu.

Watch Jillea’s #MissAmericaRemix Video (Directed by Me!)

Watch Jillea’s #MissAmericaRemix Video (Directed by Me!)

OK SO…Seeing ‘Directed by Casie Stewart & Don Allan” on this video is pretty cool! Thanks to Sean & Don (Revolver Films) for the opportunity. Was a cool experience to work my way through doing something new! All the hand lettering in the video was done by Jeff Woo.

WATCH THE VIDEO


BEHIND THE SCENES


Sean tasked me with the job of directing this and at first, I was like SURE! Then a bit of panic set in that I didn’t ‘really’ know what I was doing. Finally, his advice was just to sit down and do the work. None of us ‘really’ know what we’re doing half the time! I’ve spent enough time on set, at video shoots, and behind the scenes, plus, all the creativity I need is right in my head.

Original colour palette

I spent a few hours one Friday night working away on iPad Pro, airdropping things to my MacBook and adding them to Premiere. This step is ‘writing the directors treatment‘. Next, we met with Slate Music (label) and Jillea (artist) at Revolver Films to share the idea. They loved it! I Was really keen to use millennial pink and am so happy with how it turned out so good.


What do you think?

I look forward to more work like this, I love expanding my skills and learning as I go. I’m still working away at my iPad Letting course and am excited to put that new knowledge to work.¬†

Watch Sean Rip It Round the Track! #FordFathersDay

Watch Sean Rip It Round the Track! #FordFathersDay

Wednesday this week I took Sean to a track with Ford Canada to giver in the Ford RS and Mustang GT. I’ve driven on tracks with Ford a few times so know just how fun it is. It really helped me learn to handle a vehicle and be a more confident driver.

Ford invited me to bring a dad in my life in celebrations of Fathers Day. Sean works really hard and I knew this would make him feel great! I only went one lap and let him take a few extra just to see the smile on his face.

Look at that genuine happiness!!


WATCH THIS


Our options to drive were¬†Ford Mustang GT Convertible, Ford Mustang GT Fastback, and the Focus RS. The Focus RS is REALLY FAST. You’ll see Sean say it’s amazing in the video. ūüėú

I took lots of selfies in the Mustang Convertable, love this car AND the weather!

One of my fav things of the day was doing a ‘hot lap’ with professional drivers Darryl Timers (Ford of Canada‚Äôs Performance Driver since 2013). Our vehicles were fully stocked with GoPro‚Äôs to catch our reactions. I also woer¬†my Snapchat specs while driving so hit play below to see a first person view of me on the track.


THANK YOU Ford and the team from National PR for a memorable experience with a fav dad in my life. We’ll continue to talk about this day for a loooooong time!

Don’t forget to say hi & love you to the dads/uncles/granddads/brothers and dad friends in your life this weekend!

Ford invited me on this trip but it wasn't a paid partnership.

LIFE TIP: If you're EVER given the opportunity to drive really fast on a track YOU TAKE IT.

Thanks Ford, Love ya!
