“Born on the west coast of British Columbia and immersed in marine biology through numerous years of employment with the Vancouver Aquarium, Neil has used social media both personally and professionally to share the stories of unique Canadian flora and fauna vanishing at alarming rates.
After moving to Saskatchewan in 2014, Neil promptly dove into the field of broadcast media as an ENG for Global Television. Neil’s daily responsibilities include creating eye-catching posts for Global’s social media accounts. For the duration of 2016 he was employed by the Government of Saskatchewan as the Saskatchewanderer, highlighting the benefits of life in the province through the creation of highly engaging social media content.”
