About

Chelsea Gomez

When I discovered the art of multimedia journalism it was as if two loves of my life collided: learning and creativity.

I live to tell stories in different formats and be able to create beauty from pictures, people and words, all in a single story.

I graduated from Dalhousie University (Halifax, NS) in International Development Studies and Political Science. After a few years, I entered the post-graduate program in Journalism New Media at Sheridan College (Oakville, ON).

I am passionate about different people and cultures, social issues, and connecting with people. I have studied in Cuba and lived in the Dominican Republic.

If I am not reading or working, I will probably be found baking, adventuring in nature's wondrous landscape, or people watching - or beating my husband at Settlers of Catan!
