I’m an award-winning editor/publisher with two decades of experience in the academic, culture and non-profit sectors. I’ve worked with large institutions such as CBC, TorStar, and TIFF, and with academics at UBC, University of Toronto, The New School, San Jose State University, more. I’ve juried grants and prizes for Creative Capital, the National Magazine Awards, and the Canada Council for the Arts. I’ve project-managed and facilitated large, successful branding and fundraising initiatives. I’m known for developing and finessing multidisciplinary content that’s clear, accurate, and compelling.
