/ The Highlife

We're not just talking about getting high

The Highlife is about passionate people coming together. It’s a community, a state of flow, a way to live, connect, and create based on a solid foundation of values.

/ Higher Values

A way of living, working, and doing

Values define the company and who we are. They are the core to a way of living, working and doing. They are here to guide our individual decisions and keep us thinking together reaching highs we would never think are possible alone.


Passion Fuels Purpose

We live and breathe this lifestyle. Pursuing our professional and personal goals with purpose leads to the best outcomes. We love what we do - and it shows.


Do what you say

The only way to produce meaningful work is with integrity. We hold ourselves and each other accountable and up to the highest standards. That means sticking to deadlines and keeping our word.


Clients are people too

We choose to work with like-minded people and place high value in effective communication and trust building. Clients are part of the team, and we make a point of staying connected every step of the way.


Culture builds community

We’re here to make a positive impact and lift each other up. We work hard to take care of ourselves, each other, and what’s around us with every single decision we make.

Marketing Manager

Julia Szathmary

As a natural creative, paint flows through Julia’s veins. Pair that with a Bachelor's degree in Psychology, she understands how to effectively attract the attention of ideal customers through creative marketing strategies.

For the better part of the last decade Julia has worked in print and digital marketing. Having published campaigns in the National Post and Mclean’s magazine, and worked for some rad non-profits such as Greenpeace and the Humane Society, she’s got a knack for adapting to any circumstance.

Born and raised in the core of Toronto, Julia recently traded in sky rises and smog for mountains and fresh air. She now calls beautiful B.C. home. When she’s not crafting campaigns, you can find her floating down glacier rivers, eating salt and vinegar popcorn or crocheting with her cat (don’t judge her).

Digital Media Specialist

Johanna Macheledt

A passion for bringing people together and the perseverance it takes to create and maintain a true sense of community.

Johanna puts her heart and soul into everything she does. Combined with a background in event management, she’s a master of organization and knows how to stay on track, on time, and on point.

Johanna loves surfing, snowboarding, long hikes with her handsome sidekick Nelson, and homemade German pretzels.

Post Production Specialist

Gabrielle Fontaine

Gabby is a creative that finds adventure and happiness in filmmaking.

Editing has always come natural to her, and has been a place where she feels most at home. It’s an artform where she can truly express herself and her talents. She finds fulfillment in using those talents to help people, organizations, companies, and brands communicate their messages and have an impact. Her favourite part of a project is getting to see people’s reactions to a finished product.

Gabby loves being in the present, hanging out in nature, snowboarding, walks on the beach, exploring the world, and good company.

Editor + Photographer

Georgia Spalding

At the age of 4 in South Africa, Georgia picked up her very first video camera.

From a young age Georgia knew that the conventional 9-5 wasn’t for her; rather, she aspired to work in a field where her creative insights could be showcased. Videography and photography have long been her artistic outlets and her passion for the craft is evident through the authenticity in her work. Having graduated film school in 2020 with honours, Georgia considers herself a lifelong learner and loves developing new skills and improving upon old ones. As an editor, she is able to invoke emotions through visual storytelling to promote any brand's aesthetic.

When she’s not behind the camera, Georgia enjoys hanging with her loved ones, camping, tattoos, playing guitar, and watching movies.
