I am a communications professional with a breadth of experience in the corporate, not-for-profit, government, political and culture sectors. You can usually find me building relationships with stakeholders and developing strategies and communications plans to solve problems and create positive narratives.
In my spare time, I volunteer as the Regional Vice-President of GTA Centre Region for the Ontario Liberal Party. In 2016, I ran as a candidate for public school trustee for the TDSB and sit as a member of the Metropolitan United Church Refugee Committee.
Through my professional and volunteer experience, I have helped create opportunities for diverse representation in leadership roles across our region and have helped move the needle on important issues facing our region such as poverty, access to housing, and accessible transportation. My greatest city-building accomplishment to date has been turning an empty Buddhist temple at 918 Bathurst into a centre for culture, arts, media, and education, and a valuable contributor to the city’s arts and culture scene. I have a background in photography and graphic design and enjoy Kyudo (Japanese longbow archery) as a form of meditation.
