I’ve worked in communications and community development for many years and am lucky to love what I do. I believe communications tools should be clear, useful and respectful.

Connect with people.

Listen to what they need.

Build good work.

I develop communications products in many forms; it is the source of my paid gigs. In my time off the clock, I’m committed to improving communications between people and  between people and dogs. I blog about both topics so I can do better all around.  If you want work related posts only, click the work tag or say hi on LinkedIn.

I’m a partner, parent, amateur photographer and admirer of crows. I believe in the power of kindness.  I’ve lived in different parts of Canada and been coast to coast. I was born, raised, and currently live in Vancouver on the unceded territory of the Coast Salish people.
