I provide marketing and equity, diversity, and inclusion support to SickKids Foundation, which raises funds for The Hospital for Sick Children (SickKids). I'm also a board member at both Social Planning Toronto, which challenges inequity to spark social and policy change, and Community Foundations of Canada, which supports 200+ foundations that drive local solutions for national change.
My work in the non-profit sector and, previously, as a journalist, editor, instructor, and tech marketer has popped up in newspapers, magazines, books, blogs, vlogs, TV news and radio programs, podcasts, and classrooms. I also led editorial teams to support a festival in Central Park and American TV shows. In New York City, Silicon Valley, and Abu Dhabi, I helped manage global newsrooms of multimedia correspondents during tumultuous transitions such as the Arab Spring and 2016 U.S. presidential election. In Toronto, I documented Shopify's impact and growth into Canada's most valuable company and led teams of content marketers, video producers, and content designers there during the COVID-19 pandemic.
Still, I'm a writer at heart. I've advocated for food security, human rights protection, and supporting marginalized workers through publications including Entrepreneur, Inc., OZY, and HuffPost. I also spent eight months reporting for The Wall Street Journal's “Waste Lands” series, which revisited the little-noticed aftermath of the U.S. nuclear-arms buildup and became a finalist for a Pulitzer Prize.
