Here's a Bit About Me...

I am digital strategist, specializing in post-secondary education and social network theory. I've been building & studying community longer than ER was a TV show - from helping cities rethink youth services, to working with Canada's best minds to understand online identity, to showing universities how to reconnect. As one of the first graduates of Western University's Media & Public Interest program (Faculty of Information & Media Studies), I'm proud to work on campus helping to share the school that I love.
