Creativity, as has been said, consists largely of rearranging what we know in order to find out what we do not know. Hence, to think creatively, we must be able to look afresh at what we normally take for granted.

I enjoy working with non-profit and community organizations, small businesses and cooperatives, service providers, and the arts community. It is important to me that my clients and I have values in common.  ​


I find inspiration in nature, both in design and in life. Camping in the forest is guaranteed to spring forth many new ideas! 

I am thankful to be living in the traditional territory of the Cree, Beaver Cree, Dene and Métis peoples. I strive to create acts of reconciliation whenever I can.
