Hey, I’m Kevin.
I’m a dynamic and resourceful communicator with a digital and mobile-first mindset for marketing and communications.
Currently, I work as the Communications & Planning Officer for the Office of Student Affairs & Services with the University of Toronto Scarborough. I’m responsible for managing and executing strategic marketing and communication plans aimed at raising the portfolio profile among internal and external stakeholders.
Previously, I spent six years as a Marketing Manager with Ipsos Public Affairs, a division of Ipsos—the largest market research and public opinion polling company in Canada. Before Ipsos, I worked in a client service role for MRX, a digital media company, and worked closely with professional and amateur sports clients, including the Canadian Football League (CFL) and Canadian Hockey League (CHL). Prior to MRX, I had my first taste of the working world with the Hamilton Tiger-Cats Football Club where I spent the 2009 season working as an intern for the communications department. Oskee Wee Wee!
I have an Honours, Bachelor of Arts degree in Communications Studies (2009) from Brock University of St. Catharines, Ontario. Since my university days, I have also completed a Digital Strategy and Communications Management certificate at the University of Toronto (2015). I love to learn and always looking to stay ahead of the curve so I’m currently pursuing the Strategic Public Relations certificate at the University of Toronto.
I’m a big Leafs fan that enjoys staying active and spending time outdoors. When I’m off the grid, you’re most likely to find me in Algonquin or The County—or exploring the lakes around Durham Region and Eastern Ontario. I have a passion for travelling across Canada to experience the sights, sounds and surroundings of the north—from Vancouver Island to Newfoundland and Labrador—I look forward to the opportunity to experience everything in between in the future. I have a lofty goal of exploring all 40+ national parks across this beautiful country some day—and I’m grateful to have already knocked a couple off the list.
