Social Storyteller | Media Expert | Social Media

Camille Dundas, DirectorHaving worked as a news writer and producer for Toronto's major news programs including CBC National, CP24 Breaking News, CityTV News and CTV's Canada AM and Your Morning, I’m a media expert. My journalistic style is anchored by a passion for storytelling, which I’ve come to master. As powerful as mainstream media is, I’m a strong believer in telling our own stories, on our own platforms.

As the editor-in-chief of online magazine ByBlacks.com, a company I co-founded with my husband Roger Dundas, I’m able to pursue the passion I most enjoy; highlighting the often untold stories of Blacks in Canada doing amazing things with their lives. I also get to give back to the same community that has supported me, mentoring young Black writers who share my passion for in-depth storytelling.

As an educator, I love sharing my knowledge of the media landscape and the unique lessons learned during my last ten years in the broadcast industry. I’ve worked as a media coach to authors, entrepreneurs and non-profit organizations who want to learn the best way to pitch their stories to mainstream news media.

I’m a social first communicator with a major love for social media storytelling. As a consultant with Canada’s largest social media management software Hootsuite, I get to travel North America speaking about how social media has changed the way we all live and do business.

Storyteller | Social Media | Tech Advocate | FinServ Professional

Andray Domise, DirectorMaking an impact in the communities to which I belong, runs deeply through my life and my work. I work in these three spaces - tech, media, and Finserv - because I understand the importance of boosting marginalized voices in spaces where we influence consumption, but face obstacles to creation. I am working toward a future where the tech, media, and financial industries are forces of unanimously positive social change.

As a storyteller and journalist, I've published essays on everything from policing and racial profiling, to the narrative structure of video games, to the history of US-Haiti relations. I am often called on to speak on radio and television regarding race, pop culture, politics, and history. As the co-founder of a tech nonprofit, I've taken an idea from notes on a whiteboard to a full-fledged mentorship program supported by the city of Toronto. As a FinServ professional, I've managed accounts, resolved high-level disputes, and helped administer best practices among enterprise-level sales teams. I've helped youth of diverse backgrounds learn and create within the tech space through collaborations with professionals in the gaming and web development industries.

Publicity | Social & Digital Media | Web Designer | Publisher

Roger Dundas, Managing DirectorIf you said that family and community are my passions, you’d be right. Meeting new people and building relationships is the foundation of every project that I have the honour to work on. Scouting and managing new branding and publicity clients as Creative Director of 404 Media Group, has connected me to so many organizations I’m proud to work with, including The Spelling Bee of Canada and the Princess Margaret Cancer Foundation. My team has helped land coveted interviews for our clients on shows such as Breakfast Television, CBC News, CP24 Breakfast, CTV Canada AM, CTV Your Morning, Entertainment Tonight, Global Morning, and the Toronto Star.

I’m also the proud publisher of award-winning ByBlacks.com, Canada’s #1 Black online magazine. It’s emerged as a bold, innovative platform leading the way in featuring diverse aspects of the Black Canadian community. I’m passionate about parenting and recently completed The Father Project: an online photo series that highlights black Canadian men talking about how their relationship with their father affects how they parent. I had the privilege of sharing my views about fatherhood and masculinity through appearances on CBC Metro Morning, National Post, The Dr. Vibe Show, CTV Your Morning, NewsTalk 1010 radio, G98.7FM and The Good Men Project. In 2016, I was the recipient of the Black Business and Professional Association; Men of Honour award.

Media Relations | Public Relations | Communications | Writer

Michèle Newton, Director &  Corporate SecretaryStories and growing relationships are at the heart of everything I’m passionate about. A creative writer from an early age, I’ve leveraged that into a successful career that I love. Working with many different brands and organizations over the years, I’ve found that thoughtful and compelling storytelling is at the heart of it all. My approach has regularly garnered media interviews and coverage from CTV-2, CBC, Torstar/Metroland, Corus, ROGERS tv and numerous other broadcast and print media outlets.

I’ve had the opportunity to provide strategic public and media relations, communications and marketing services across different industry sectors including municipal government, financial services, real estate, beauty services, packaged goods, arts, entertainment and not-for-profit. I’m guided by–what I like to call my–“better together” philosophy around growing relationships, nurturing collaborations and facilitating partnerships, especially those with a shared focus on strengthening our community.

As the creator of Our Mosaic Lives, a digital project Celebrating Black Canadian Women and Girls, I’ve had opportunities to speak about my journey, exploring my mixed-race upbringing and identity on CBC’s Fresh Air and at a University of Toronto international conference. In January 2019, I’m curating an Our Mosaic Lives photo exhibit in partnership with the City of Barrie.
