Being born and raised in a small factory town in Southern Ontario meant one thing – I had a lot of free time growing up, and most of it was spent dedicated to absorbing music, film and television at insane rates.

This meant that I knew from a very young age I would move to Toronto as soon as I possibly could in order to experience all this culture I could only see on the screen – and it’s been over a decade since I was able to make that happen.

Since moving here I’ve got a dog and named him after a Bob Dylan song, graduated from a Fine Arts program at York University, volunteered for a variety of organizations, worked at least a dozen different jobs – some awful, some amazing, lived in five different apartments/neighbourhoods, made some of the best friends of my life, experienced more live music than I can remember, started this blog, met some of my heroes, created my own business and fell completely in love with this city.

There’s nowhere else in Canada for me. As my adventures in Toronto and abroad continue, I will continue to share them with you here.


Turn The Record Over is a Toronto based lifestyle & culture blog for creative professionals.

Started over five years ago as a personal blog, it morphed into a music lifestyle blog before settling into its current incarnation as a lifestyle blog for creatives, focused on helping you discover the best in music, travel, style, food and drink, and technology, alongside #GirlBoss focused career advice.

The name comes from an Elliott Smith song, if you were wondering.

Over the years, TTRO has collaborated with specific companies and brands that align with its creative vision, including:
