... and I work with passionate people and creative communities to imagine the best possible vision for our future. Together, we ask powerful questions, build connections and make a little practical magic.
As an award-winning community developer and community engagement practitioner, and long-time advocate for the critical importance of rural communities in Canada's social and economic fabric, I have had the privilege of working alongside progressive public servants, engaged citizens, and diverse organizations to develop creative, practical visions of our shared future. A lifelong 'shift disturber', my best work happens when I get to play at the leading edge of applied innovation and community connections.
I live, work and play at the intersection of technology, civic engagement and community building, where I happily seek to disrupt the status quo in favour of a renewed and revitalized civil society. Using curiosity, humour, story-telling and personal connection, I break down barriers and build bridges - and place rural communities and the people that call them home at the heart of a growing movement towards a rural innovation agenda.
I believe that stories are powerful, relationships matter, and the questions we ask have the power to change our lives. And I want to help your community achieve its wildest dreams.
