“When we want mood experiences, we go to concerts or museums. When we want meaningful emotional experience, we go to the storyteller.” -Robert McKee, Story
After graduating from Concordia University with a Bachelors of English, Leigh was hired by MindGeek to write web copy and scripts. It was a fast-paced environment where she learned to write quickly and independently.
At the same time, Leigh discovered Confabulation, Montreal’s premier monthly storytelling show. In a dim theatre on St. Laurent, she told personal stories, developing her craft along side other professional writers and storytellers.
Several years and several stories later, Leigh is now a respected member of the Montreal storytelling community and the general manager of Confabulation. She edits and produces stories, coordinates the logistics of the live shows, and spearheads The Confab Story Lab- a series of workshops for beginner storytellers and professionals alike.
Turning her attention to copywriting, Leigh developed a unique approach to business communication and marketing that highlights the story of each brand she works with. Her past clients include major corporations such as iWeb and ADT-Protectron, as well as local artisans like Pilar Agueci Jewellery. Leigh has customized her style to reflect their individual brands and told their stories to a diverse range of clients.
