This spring we are thrilled to welcome four new faces to Nordicity’s offices in Toronto and Ottawa. All of Nordicity’s new team members confess to a love of coffee but their tastes in Canadian content are as diverse as their professional skills and experiences.
Tara Rajan is a Senior Consultant at Nordicity. She brings over 20 years of policy and research experience to Nordicity, having worked in a senior management capacity at the Canadian Association of Broadcasters, the Canada Media Fund and the Department of Canadian Heritage, among others. Tara’s bilingualism is reflected in her taste in movies: one of her favourites is Denys Arcand’s Jésus de Montréal but she also admits that NFB classic The Railrodder still cracks her up.
Ethan Zhang is a Consultant with expertise in financial modelling, economic and financial analysis. Ethan holds a Honours B.Com. degree in finance from University of Ottawa, and is a Chartered Financial Analyst (CFA) candidate. He has been known to tune into the Business News Network while working and this summer he is looking forward to the release of the next Bourne action film.
Sabrina Wilkinson is a Research Analyst with a keen interest in digital strategies in newsrooms. She is pursuing her M.A. in communications at Carleton University and her thesis examines changes to the labour of journalists during the emergence and development of the Internet. In addition to her expertise in research and analysis, Sabrina is an ardent fan of the Canadian television series Kids in the Hall.
Greg McClary is Nordicity’s intern at the Toronto office. He expects to graduate from Schulich's double-degree M.B.A./M.A. program in 2016, specializing in finance, accounting and orchestral composition. In his spare time Greg smoothes out wrinkles in folkloric flux: five figurative fables for orchestra, the symphony he submitted as his thesis in the MA program. Originally from Alberta, Greg recommends the movie Waydowntown as a “Calgary Indie Classic.”

Emily Macrae is a Research Analyst at Nordicity’s Toronto office. She often listens to music in French while working in English and vice versa but favours Canadian artists in both languages.
