Dilon & Co.
I write for individuals, big & small companies, videos, printed publications, Blogs, and Apps. Sometimes I even help companies build their content strategy and create their entire information architecture.
My passion for storytelling began when I moved back to Vancouver in 2011 and started a blog about my experiences studying and living in Switzerland, Spain and England. I then put my writing to use in the sales department at Sandman Hotel Group in Vancouver, where I wrote marketing emails that successfully landed dozens of new accounts across the Lower Mainland.
