I’m an independent consultant in communications and human rights. My practice focuses especially (but not exclusively) on the human rights of people affected by HIV/AIDS.
Previously, I was director of marketing and communications at OCAD University, Canada’s oldest and largest university of art and design, and director of communications at the Canadian HIV/AIDS Legal Network, Canada’s leading advocacy organization working on the legal and human rights issues raised by HIV/AIDS.
In addition to my work in the not-for-profit sector, I also have extensive experience in the private sector (with PwC, a.k.a. PricewaterhouseCoopers) and in the public sector (with the Senate of Canada, the Ontario Democratic Renewal Secretariat and the Consulate General of Canada in Sydney, Australia).
I hold graduate degrees from the University of Technology, Sydney (UTS) and Concordia University in Montréal, and an undergraduate degree from the University of Ottawa. I also serve as a member of the board of directors of the LGBT Youth Line, which provides peer-support services to youth across Ontario.
I’m currently based in Toronto, but travel periodically on assignment.
