I am a multi-talented fashion industry professional with equal parts writing and editing chops; a digital expert who can achieve tangible results; a creative leader who can conceptualize and deliver; an equal opportunity lover of high and low culture. I am still not over the nineties.

Hi! I’m Randi and I’m a freelance writer, editor and digital freak based in Toronto. I cover a wide variety of topics, including fashion, art, pop culture and lifestyle—sometimes self deprecatingly, other times seriously.

I'm currently working on the forthcoming Toronto Makes, a book that tells the stories 50+ of the city's finest makers, from ceramicists to artisanal chocolatiers, through written word and photography. (Sept 2019, Figure 1 Publishing).

My work can be seen in publications such as The Globe and Mail, The Cut, Glamour, The Kit, Canadian Art, Flare Magazine, Vogue.com, The Coveteur, S/ Magazine, Interview Magazine, Toronto Life and NOW Magazine. I have also worked with brands such as Chanel, Aldo, Holt Renfrew, Nasty Gal and Pusateri's in a copywriting, strategy and consulting capacity.

Previously, I was the Executive Digital Editor at FASHION Magazine, where I led both print and digital teams through an integrated editorial strategy. In my five years at the magazine, I travelled to fancy locales in pursuit of celebrity and designer interviews, squashed social media records and managed to win four consecutive awards for best website at the P&G Fashion and Beauty Awards. Oh, and I covered fashion week too, which is always less glamorous than you think.

I am still not over the nineties. For more proof, visit my throwback Instagram account @capsule98 and tune into my brand new podcast, Capsule '98, which delves into all things nostalgia with a slew of celebrity guests.
