Let me tell you a story.
21st century hobbit, poet, twenty-something, digital polymath, and mystic, as well as a perennial scholar of myth, systems, complexity, and simplicity.
Having graduated in 2013 with a double major in Liberal Studies & Digital Media, I was accepted into Canada's top project-based postgraduate program for digital media theory and praxis — Vancouver's Master of Digital Media— where I collaborated on successful solutions with clients in film, video games, and television, through an integrated approach to project management, communications, and experience design.
After ten intense months at THNK, I decided to invest in a decade-long dream: attending Schumacher College, an internationally-acclaimed institution for transformative learning on issues relating to paradigmatic sustainability and societal transformation. I wrote my dissertation on the role of vision in design—specifically, how design might learn from the literary and aesthetic art of 'mythopoeia' in order to achieve desirable futures—citing the contemporary example of solarpunk as a case study.
I have since moved to England full-time, and will soon be starting a position at the Royal Society of Arts in their Area and Fellowship teams.
