Hi there, I’m Amy. I’d love to offer my services to make your business run better. I’ve worked with companies big and small on their digital strategy, branding and marketing. I’m a design + communications specialist with ten years experience that has worked both in Toronto and abroad. My areas of expertise are website development, campaign design, and social media strategy.  I want to help you look good on the internet …and sometimes in print too! Amy, along with her business partners – is also the co-founder of the Toronto-based production company better than fine inc.

This is no longer my side hustle.

As of January 2019, The Side Hustle is my full-time gig. Working in-house, from co-working spaces, or my home office is my new normal. Need help on your next project? Get in touch for a quote, or request some samples from my portfolio.

Amy is everything you want your digital strategist to be. She has transformed my brand and social media presence into something I not only love but am deeply proud of. I chose Amy after refusing to give up any aspect of my brand because of her deep expertise, ability to explain concept ideas to a non social media person and her genuine kindness. If you are ready to step up your social media game and presence I highly recommend Amy.
