Hi I’m Mel, and I’m a Toronto-based wedding filmmaker, freelance videographer, and lifestyle content creator. My passion for media and storytelling began with creating MapleStory animations on YouTube in 2008. Since then, I’ve graduated with my BA in Media Production (major in Television and Video), and am currently working on building my own personal brand. During my spare time, I enjoy working on my travel & lifestyle blog (melstory.ca), streaming on Twitch, and drinking bubble tea. Follow along as I navigate my way through life as a creative!


  1. Hii friends, happy new year!! πŸ˜πŸŽ‰ Hope you guys had a wonderful and relaxing holiday season celebrating with your loved ones! ❀ I had a lot of fun editing this vlog cuz it was packed with memorable moments with my family πŸ₯° I want to continue pushing out weekly vlogs to document my growth/journey into adulthood :') How do you guys feel about the new year?? What was 2022 like for you and what are you looking forward to in 2023?For me, I feel like 2022 was a pivotal year where I moved out on my own, began traveling/shooting a lot of destination weddings, and started therapy where I was able to significantly work through/heal my traumas. I also got better at setting boundaries, saying no, and valuing my time/energy/peace. Now with 2023, I feel like I've done a lot of healing work and feel ready to really take the next steps forward in life. Although this year will be expensive (living alone $$$) & filled with a lot of uncertainty (inconsistent freelance work), I can't wait to continue working towards a life of creative freedom and passion. Cheers to the new year & let's keep growing together!!Love & appreciate you guys so much. Thank you for being a special part of my life!! πŸ’•- Mel ^___^


  3. Happy New Year! So glad you got to meet most of your friends and your family coming together for Christmas! Your family is growing pretty big now and everything in this video is so wholesome, love it! My favorite part was probably you treating you mom to the spa.

  4. Happy New Year Mel! It's great that you spent such a wonderful time with your friends and family after such a busy year with so many things going on. Looked like such a fun time during christmas games 🀣 (tho i think you def cheated too LOOOOOOL) I always seem to miss the twitch streams but I'll try my best to tune in when they happen! I remember last time we caught up one of the main things that stood out was that you were hesitant to say no or speak out for yourself and valuing your own time and what you do, so I'm really glad that things have improved. I hope the this year treats you well and that you continue to grow and achieve whatever goals you have for yourself! πŸŽ‰

  5. Happy New Year Mel!!! This year I am going to get into cooking, already bought myself a book to start doing some recipes πŸ˜€

  6. its fun to see how much fun your holidays were. Happy new year Mel, hope this ones a great one!

  7. Happy New Years Mel! Hope you have an amazing one, Cheers!!!
