About me & my work:

I always wanted to make the world a better place, but it wasn't until I was at the end of my 20s and broke my back at work that I found out how.

Since then, I've been back to school, graduated with numerous scholarships and honours, co-founded two nonprofit organizations, and launched a new career as a Creative Project Manager and Social/Multimedia Specialist.

TEDxVictoria is one of my projects. The largest TEDx event on Vancouver Island in British Columbia, Canada, and one of the largest and most successful events of its kind in the region (next to TED, TEDActive, and TEDxVancouver). We are in our fourth year of operation and the ideas are still coming, so I am not ready to stop yet.

I am also a Cofounder of Magnetic Minds, a society focused on making sure ideas-focused community events are maintained in Victoria, BC.

I also work as a freelance Media Coordinator and Multimedia Specialist for several organizations, most notably Seasmoke PR here in Victoria.

But my real passion is bringing together community, ideas, and action -- working to facilitate change and next steps. That is my path, and there is so much more I can do...

Some of My Photos | Some of my photography work. I really should update it more frequently...

My blog | My infrequently-updated blog. I keep it personal, but impersonal, y'know? The best stories are the TED stories.
