I’m a interdisciplinary designer with a focus in food justice, social innovation and regenerative economics. I have a degree in Design Arts, five years of experience in organic food production & education and, a design practice that includes web development, visual communication and multimedia video and sound editing. I’m especially motivated by work grounded in a participatory spirit, systems thinking, and care.

gorgeously organized spreadsheets,
supporting emotional intelligence and personal development in others.
Pyjamas: Rayon, Elastic, Reused buttons, reused thread.
For one year, I worked as the Communications Intern for the Concordia University Centre for Creative Reuse. This is an organization the diverts materials from the University’s waste stream and makes them available to the public for free along with opportunities for skill sharing, building tool literacy, and encouraged repair and reuse. Ultimately they are facilitating a culture of reuse amongst an engaged and diverse community.
I helped them visually communicate their re-opening, expansion and other events, created maps posted across the campus and aided in the process of creating new way-finding. This was not only valuable experience in communications, but also in my learning about active systemic change and the development of socially and environmentally sustainable initiatives. I took part in compelling discussions about community empowerment, inclusivity and accessibility, institutional change, as well as witnessed the development of a resilient community aimed at sustainable change.
My work varied greatly and included illustration, typography, video, photography, animation, poster design, way-finding, social media page management and strategizing for the communication of new missions and mandate.
