My name is Hallae — pronounced [huh-lay] — and I’m an actor turned director turned fashion marketer turned journalist. With an undergrad in drama from Queen’s University, a master’s in journalism from UBC’s Graduate School of Journalism, and a refusal to truly grow up, I’ve found my place in the world at CBC Kids as a digital producer.
During my time on the West Coast I produced mini-documentaries, planned and executed social media strategies for the Vancouver Observer and Stoke FM, and spent time both behind-the-scenes and on-air for Shaw TV’s community programming and as a morning show host for the aforementioned radio station. In Toronto, I have experience working in digital for CBC Radio One shows, including backfill for q and The Current.
Thanks to my background in theatre, fashion marketing, and journalism, I have developed strong interpersonal skills, a tireless work ethic, an unwavering commitment to details, and a healthy funny bone. Whether it’s copy editing pieces for children and adults alike, interviewing subjects, or shooting a goofy video, I have found that my unique experiences help me connect, prepare, and think on my feet when the preparation falls through.
