Meet our founder: Sarah Kirkpatrick

I look at it like this:

  • Marketing Management gave me the mind of a business woman,
  • General Studies led me to become a well-rounded scholar,
  • Youth Leadership enhanced my strengths in group situations,
  • And Creative Advertising taught me the skills to be the imaginative and strong writer that I am today.
  • From psychology to natural science, and all of the marketing in between,

I have a wide range of knowledge in numerous genres.

Sarak Kirkpatrick - SMAK media founder

President & founder of SMAK media.

One could say I have a “Masters” in writing. After 6 years of full time school I have received a certificate in General Studies and in Marketing Management from Mount Royal College in Calgary Alberta, a Youth Leadership diploma from the Haven Institution on Gabriola Island British Columbia , and a degree in Creative Advertising majoring in copywriting at Humber College in Toronto Ontario.


While completing my degree, I freelanced as a writer/editor and marketing consultant for a variety of small businesses. In the summer of 2010, I interned as a junior copywriter at TBA Digital, a digital agency in Vancouver, British Columbia. In 2012-2013, I interned as a copywriter and social media manager for Baby Robot in Toronto, Ontario.

Not only am I an academic and devoted worker, I am a world traveler. Aside from my various living arrangements throughout the country, I have traveled around Europe, Mexico, the Caribbean, and the United States.


…and with this, I label myself a creative writer, deep thinker, and motivated worker.
