About Me

Why should anybody care?

I don’t always have a fan blowing through my hair, but I pretty much look like this.

That’s the one question I keep trying to answer. I used to think it only applied to journalism, but now I believe it applies to all forms of communication, be it PR, advertising, art, and whatever else involves an audience.

My name is Olivia Collette. I write in both English and French. I also speak some Spanish, Italian and German. I use this space to blog and to flaunt my portfolio.

Samples of my writing are available on the homepage. I’ve written for a number of different publications, including Vulture, the Montreal Gazette, the Huffington Post (Québec and Canada), Roger Ebert, Urbania, SparksheetDiary of a Social Gal, and Mondo*Arc. I’m also very proud to have contributed to some books.

You can go to the different sections of this site to look at specific projects. Selected articles and interviews are in Journalism. My writings for a famous film critic are in Pieces for Roger Ebert. View some vids in Videos. See some of my ad and PR stuff in Marketing. The kind of ad concepts I come up with on my own are in Fake Ads. Hope you enjoy.

CONGRATULATIONS ON FINDING ME; THIS MEANS MY EXPOSURE IS WORKING. IT ALSO MEANS I WILL NOT WORK FOR FREE.
