About me

After having spent 4 years travelling, living, volunteering and working abroad everywhere from Australia to Zimbabwe - I returned back to my hometown, just north of Toronto, in 2013 where I had the pleasure of continuing to share my adventures on my travel blog The Mellyboo Project. At this time I found myself frequenting the Toronto Travel Massive meetups and in 2014, decided to step it up a notch by becoming one of the co-organizers of the hugely popular monthly event.

After quitting my job as a travel agent, I started my photography company - MS Creative and am open to collaborating with Influencers on shoots, and Tourism Boards and DMO's on providing superior photography that can be used in their campaigns.
