consulting | project management | strategy | technology | facilitation

I am a freelance consultant/project manager, facilitator, and practicing artist/musician based in the Lower Mainland with over 15 years of experience working in the arts and non-profit sectors in leadership, technical, and administrative roles. Over the past 11 years I have been focusing on specializing in the areas of organizational development, anti-oppression/systems change work, web/software development, and project management. 

Like many of us who have worked in these sectors for many years, I developed strong skills as a generalist and learned to understand and function in many areas of organizational management and development. My areas of specialization and passion include anti-oppression/systems change work, digital transformation, and organizational development for sustainability. The sectors I have the most experience in include arts, non-profit, and co-operative models. For my personal projects, I have historically leaned towards collective and artist-run-centre models.

How I work and how to contact me:

I respond quickest by email and the following contact form. When you contact me, I will book a 15-30 minute meeting to understand your project and to confirm whether I am the best person for the project you are working on. The values of openness, anti-oppression, collaboration, and transparency are very important to me in how I work. I am highly responsive and while I am comfortable with lots of ambiguity, I can also take direction very well.

Please fill out the following form to get in touch. I look forward to speaking with you!
