About Me

Anna is a brand manager and digital strategist who is always on the lookout for new projects and interesting experiences.

As a young professional with a background in design and business development with a focus on visual storytelling, Anna approaches projects with personal flair and a highly refined sense of aesthetics. As an entrepreneur who is actively engaged in the startup community, she has developed a highly engaged social network. She has worked with a number of companies to help them develop their brand, voice, and digital strategies.

Anna is currently updating her personal website and portfolio. You can view a wider collection of her work here -- a visual diary of sorts.











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.











I adore new wave films, 60’s french pop, altruism, shoegaze, 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, pastel hair, 2am inspiration, the sea, and friendly coffee dates.

    • “Make Friends Not Contacts”

      I strongly believe that being a conscious consumer is an important way to increase social equity and make a real difference around us. I believe that businesses can have kindness, gratitude, humility and simplicity at their core and still be profitable.
