As a student at the University of King’s College, I was in the 2015 winter TV workshop. As a group, we put together a weekly show called The Anchor that aired on Eastlink. I made at least one video a week, so it was a steep learning process. There were a lot of roles to putting a show together, so I  got to host for one episode, was the web editor for another and be the show producer (my favourite role).

My video portfolio can also be found at my youtube channel.

I’ve interviewed an award winning comic book artist, a group that helps seniors and old dogs stay together, and took a look inside a pretty unusual house.

Graphic designer Christopher Hemsworth talks about the second annual Geequinox, a grassroots convention that brings together local artists and societies.

It’s affordable, fun and it took place on April 25-26 at the Halifax Forum.

A Canadian superhero with money problems.

A girl just starting high school who sees ghosts.

And, of course, the zombie apocalypse.

All of these come up in the comic books by Faith Erin Hicks.

One of her comics recently won an Eisner Award. That’s like winning an Oscar.

Elizabeth Whitten caught up with her.
