March 2023 – Winning Photo, Sales, and more!

Hey Friends!

How is it March already? I feel like I blinked and February was over. So sadly, I didn’t manage to get out for a photo walk this month, and I really didn’t get much posted on social media BUT that doesn’t mean things haven’t been happening behind the scenes/screens. I have been dedicating a lot of time this month to preparing a grant application, settling into my new day job (I love it so much) and planning a big update for April. So, stay tuned to hear more about all that! (Except the job, NDAs and all).


Surf Scoters slashing around as they hunt for lunch. Winning Photo from the CPAWS #IMPAC5OceanFest Photo Contest.

First of all I am super excited to announce I won CPAWS #IMPAC5OceanFest Photo Contest with one of my favourite pics from January! I loved watching these Surf Scoters splashing around in Stanley Park when I was able to get out there back in January! This is actually the second photo that I have had win one of their contest, after I won a random draw prize in their Nature’s Bubble Contest a couple of years ago. I never really though about it, but I guess I can call myself an award winning photographer now. Ha!

If you haven’t heard of CPAWS, they are the Canadian Parks and Wilderness Society and is one of Canada’s oldest non profit conservation groups. I pretty much grew up in the woods and and have a lot of respect for the wild, and truly value the word of conservation groups like them. You can learn more about CPAWS BC and they work they do by checking out their about page and follow them on Instagram! I hope I can find more ways to support them in the future.


Offer summary for the  FROM SCHTICK TO SCRIPT Winter 2023 Program

For anyone needing a boost to kick their own ass into making that project/writing that script you have in mind, the amazing Daniela Saioni is having a sale on her FROM SCHTICK TO SCRIPT Winter 2023 Bundle Offer!

The discount is only valid until March 6, 2023.

So you have a little bit of time for that inner debate, but don’t delay! I have taken several courses with Daniela over the years and you are absolutely doing yourself a favour by taking the opportunity to learn from her! And she has more than just comedy writing courses including script supervising and scene coverage that are useful to just about anyone who works on a film set (and to be honest the comedy courses can be applied to other genres other than comedy too).


I have some new designs up on my REDBUBBLE Store! And new products, including mugs and bags! But what is probably more exciting, and more likely for you to be excited about THERE’S A SALE GOING ON RIGHT NOW!!!

Not only is it Redbubble’s Birthday Month, it’s also

MY Birthday Month!

So, if you wanted to buy but were hesitant to spend, now is the time!!!!! So check it out now at!

I am going to have another small announcement about my birthday in a couple of days, but that is less for this website and more for social media. (So, if you’re interested but not already following me, *hint hint, nudge, nudge*).

I also am making some changes to the Flowers & Fuck Off soon, but hopefully only for the better. Patterned clothing and fabrics are going to move to my new artist store on the QuirikNSpite Store on the Art of Where website. Everything that was on FFO can be found there, plus a few things I hadn’t gotten around to posting. Not only that but…


Yes, this means less profit for me, but I also want to make my designs more accessible! Either way, check it out today!

QuirkNSpite on YOUTUBE

If you aren’t following me on YouTube yet, I forgive you, I’m still building the content for that plan. But check out what I have up there already, cause I am going to start posting weekly in April. (Yes, quite the challenge for someone with ADHDCore vibes who has trouble doing anything consistently, but that is the power of scheduling!) Until the bigger content hits, join me for funny reels, dad jokes, my cat and some of my favourite memories on #TBT.

A little memory for #TBT. I also have my short film No Where now on YouTube, and I really want to thank my co-producer and lead actor Courtney Lyons, who was going through so much at the time of filming this, and continues to be one of the strongest women, and role models, I have ever met. If you haven’t heard of her before, check her out on IMDB or check out her small business ThatZapGirl.


I feel like I had something else to add but the day is almost over and I can always write more. I have a few projects on the horizon I am really excited for. It feels good to have time to just create. This also means it’s going to be a bit quiet for most of March from me, but I hope to be coming back strong for Q2.

❤ ❤ Til next time. Hopefully it won’t take the whole month for me to post again.


What’s New Jan 22


I am excited to Announce that I am going to be joining Atomic Cartoons as a Production Coordinator starting tomorrow Jan 23, 2023! I am really looking forward to joining the team and seeing how awesome we can make this next project!

Also, changes to are ongoing. I am going to be updating the site to make it more reflective of who, and where, I am now. So expect more photography, more frequent blog posts and everything else I can come up with.  But that is going to be happening slowly over the next month or two. Why? See above.

I am also very excited to announce then start of my new YOUTUBE CHANNEL!


I have had it up for just over a week and I have been blown away by how well it’s done so far. So, moving forward you can expect weekly Meditation videos (30 and 60 minute long versions). I am repurposing timelapses and landscape videography from my archive and layering it with slow and soothing sounds and music. I am also planning some guided mediations that are more on the funny/profane side. You know, for people like me who need that kind of humour to relax.

I was also surprised to see that YouTube now has a TikTok Style Shorts section, so I will also be making use of that with some of my fav Reels and TTs from the last year as well as curating new content for there specifically, including skits, random facts and  TL:DR summaries of any blog posts I make. I am also going to start posting monthly photo montages to keep me honest with my monthly photography goals.

Speaking of Photography!

I picked a second hand camera and extra lens this week (and am searching for another), so I can make more use of my camera skills with some multi angle video shoots and have a second lens at the ready while I am out on my photo walks’

New Affiliate Links and Affiliate Link Page up! is now LIVE! I will keep updating it and give a heads up here when there is something new.

New Links:


This marketplace has been so helpful as I have been building my business. New tools, courses, resources and more for discounts and life time deals. I have got automation software, Audio licenses, social media schedulers and more. Definitely worth a look, especially if you need some new software.

Canva Pro

I also got this link for Canva. If you don’t have photoshop and still want to create dynamic social media posts and edit videos, check out Canva Pro!

What Am I Working on for me?

After winning Daniela’s 5 day challenge to make a 5 day challenge last year I have had 5 day Hack Your Productivity Challenge hovering in the background of my to list. And it’s finally that project’s time to get done.  I am still learning InDesign to build a custom bullet journal and design my new portfolio, and still need to finish up with the QuirkNSpite rebrand for Flowers & Fuck Off, but slowly I am checking the pieces off the to do list.  So between the new contract, my social media plan, rebrand plan, 5 day challenge plan and inDesign tasks, hopefully I can maintain the presence of mind to keep up with some semi regular updates! 

Social Media

If you haven’t connected with me on Social media yet, please check me out and give me a follow:










TL:DR for this blog will be posted to my Instagram Reels, YouTube Shots and TikToks so don’t forget to join me on Social Media and never miss an update.

That is plenty of updates for the time being! I got a few videos to film and edit still this evening, but keep your eyes and ears open for more updates to come!!!!



Happy 2023!

I am a bit behind in updating with my year end summery post, but that is going to get pushed back to the end of March.

In the mean time, keep an eye open for changes coming here to I have started a page redesign, and am going to start featuring my photography and art more prominently, rather than my past in the Film Industry.

In the meantime, don’t forget to check out my current online stores at: Flowers&Fuck Off and QuirkNSpite on Redbubble. And if you haven’t seen, I have new photos and some digital paintings recently posted on my Behance Profile!

I am working on a rebrand of my Online Brand so that is taking most of my focus these days, but my Redbubble Page is a bit of a hint.
