About

Hello. My name is Mike and I seem to be addicted to learning new things. I work out of Vancouver, BC as a freelance “Jack of all trades” for literary, cultural, and business publications. Also, given my broad range of skills, I’ve been inspired to start a few ventures. Currently,

  • I run all things marketing & promotions at Caitlin Press, home of Dagger Editions
  • I am completing my thesis final project report for my Master of Publishing degree at SFU.
  • My undergraduate degree is in World Literature, Publishing, and Interactive Arts & Tech.
  • I regularly volunteer for goodwill organizations and independent media (ex. Media Democracy Days)
  • I was a sessional instructor in SFU’s Publishing Department.
  • I co-founded a magazine called Textbook, now folded.
  • Finally, I really, really like Excel.

In the past, I’ve been an advertising sales rep, mushroom pickercommunity event producer, penguin intern, watch seller, piano teacher, wooden bow tie seller, and then some.
