About Me

Hello! My name’s Shianne, and I’m a Content Writer and Freelance Illustrator currently living in BC, Canada. I’m originally from Toronto, where I studied at OCAD University and received my Bachelor’s Degree in Design.

Right now I’m working as a Contributing Writer for Frolic, where I cover topics ranging from books to fandom culture. I also work as a Podcaster and Illustrator for Metamashina, where my co-hosts and I talk about genre fiction. Prior to this, I worked as a Senior Writer for MakeUseOf, where I covered creative tech, entertainment, productivity, and job-hunting topics.

My writing experience includes movie reviews, TV reviews, opinion pieces, and YouTube video scripts for entertainment websites. I also have experience creating Photoshop tutorials and app listicles for tech companies. Additionally, I love science fiction, fantasy, robots, and romance novels—although not necessarily in that order.
