Digital Strategy


As a Toronto native, Kristian decided to remain in Canada’s business capital and technological hub for her post-secondary education. She recently attained her Bachelor of Commerce from the University of Toronto, where she specialized in marketing and strategy.

Over time Kristian noticed a trend; she always merged her extracurricular and professional endeavors within arts, athletics, government and not-for-profit with the digital world. Her diverse experience ranges from writing articles for a reader base of over 70,000 to formulating digital strategies for small businesses. This past summer, she went on a backpacking expedition across Tanzania where she volunteered for social enterprises and somehow managed to summit Mount Kilimanjaro.

Why Digital Media?

The digital sector is now incredibly integrated in our daily lives and is a key focus for marketing, strategy and business. There is so much potential for online assets to provide solutions to the multitude of marketing challenges facing small organizations and businesses.

Kristian is eager for the opportunity to work with like-minded, innovative students, as well as learn from entrepreneurs in the Digital Media Zone.




MDM Field Trip!  

In the past month, MDM students have had the opportunity to visit two of Canada's most well-known and successful companies in the digital media landscape. On March 9, students sojourned through notable ecommerce startup Shopify. The following week, students checked out Cossette, an agency specializing in digital marketing. Students took a tour of both companies' Toronto offices and enjoyed discussions and Q+A sessions with key team members.

Special thanks to Julene Chung for organizing!

The Secret Marathon: A First Look

Inspired by a story of courage, a young woman and her legendary marathon mentor train in secret for the Marathon of Afghanistan, only to uncover that for the runners, this marathon is much more than just a race...

MDM 2016-17 student and master storyteller Kate McKenzie presents the first look at her feature length documentary, an intimate portrayal of female athletes in Afghanistan. For this run, the obstacles are more than what appears on the road.

See the first trailer here!

Kate's project was previously featured on the Ryerson Graduate Page and in the Toronto Star.
