Hey, I’m Leon!

I'm a Canadian expatriate now based in the United States. I work in communications for the Human Rights Initiative of the Open Society Foundations.

Previously, I was an independent consultant in communications and human rights for more than five years. My practice focused especially (but not exclusively) on the human rights of people affected by HIV. I have also served as 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 and 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 live and work in Washington, D.C., but travel regularly overseas on assignment.
