My name is Chantal Rolande Kathleen Plourde — but you can call me Tal Rolande. I was born in Scarborough and spent the first part of my life on Lake Simcoe before moving to Ottawa to earn my Bachelor of Arts at Carleton University. Now, I’m back in Toronto studying Digital Analytics at George Brown College.
Currently, I’m a writer at The Home Depot and the co-founder of Purple Penguin. Over the last 8 years, I’ve held positions at HomeStars, The Home Depot Canada and Shared. My freelance work has been featured on the OCS, Saskatchewan and BC Cannabis stores for Gage Cannabis and Spectrum Therapeutics for Radicle Medical Marijuana Inc.
I live on the top floor of a century-old house — a special place I’ve designed around my lifestyle. My intention here is to share my life, my work and all the things that light my fire. Thank you for joining me, hope to connect with you and be inspired.
