chris_l-e1557004136632.jpgI’m a Staff Writer for Strategy. As a journalist, I cover daily news and write features about industry trends in the marketing and advertising space. I write/edit a biweekly shopper marketing report as well, focused on consumer packaged goods and grocery trends.

Lombardo_picture_headshot2I’ve written for TV, done some social media management, event photography, InDesign work, media relations, speechwriting, and feature journalism. I’ve appeared on Newstalk 1010 and Global Television to discuss social media.

I have freelanced for the Globe & Mail, Toronto Star, Toro, Mental Floss, Daily Dead, and Rue Morgue, to name a few, examples of which can be seen on the Writing page.

I’ve authored three books, all nonfiction.

I co-host, produce, and edit the Really Awful Movies Podcast, a spirited genre film show that has been downloaded in over 70 countries. I sometimes cover horror film festivals and conventions as a journalist. I also write weekly genre film reviews, including the occasional advanced screener sent my way, at Really Awful Movies.
