I'm a creative thinker and collaborator passionate about increasing equality and inclusion in cities. 

In the past, my work has focused on designing processes, tools, and engagement models to increase civic participation and leverage local resources to address community needs. I'm currently dedicating my work to bringing digital services to government. 

I have a BFA in Printmaking from Queen's University and an MS in Design & Urban Ecologies from Parsons School of Design Strategies. I previously worked at Code for America, and now consult with numerous local government agencies to improve their use of technology, especially within the HR, hiring and talent space.

Some events I've spoken at include: 

Code for America Summit Designing 21st Century Civil Service | Oakland, CA 5/2019
