Find me watering fig trees in my indoor garden, contributing to discussion in the 30k+ strong employment & entrepreneurial group I started last year, meeting strangers for coffee, wandering around the city while meditating on my next themed playlist, outside city hall, carefully curating and creating content for clients, hiding out between shelves at the library, seeking out pretty pieces of the past in thrift store aisles, taking photos of churches, drawing pictures of passersbys and feeling low key jealous of husky owners.
I adore new wave films, 60’s french pop, altruism, shoegaze, all things twee, ukuleles, Wes Anderson, carefully curated playlists, terrible puns, double negatives, literature, illustration, astrology, black and white photography, space docs, breakfast foods, beach camping, strong female friendships, hand lettering, minimal design, monochromatic minimalism, fig trees, floral prints, autumn splendour, the sea, and friendly coffee dates.
I am always seeking out new projects and interesting experiences. Please get in touch if you are interested in working together!
It's not unusual for me to be working on a number of creative projects at any given time. My primary focus these days is working with small businesses to develop their branding, websites and digital strategies. I founded the Cynefin Collective in 2014 as a means of reaching out to the entreprenurial community.
Some current and past clients include The City of Toronto, The Liberal Party, Green Enterprise Movement, The Green Living Show, Food Starter, Peace Point TV, Gusto 101, Trattoria Nervosa and more...
For the past few years I have working with the directly with The City of Toronto through the Economic and Cultural Development Division (Enterprise Toronto & Startup Here Toronto), in regards to developing the digital strategy for the city's entrepreneurial and startup community programs.
