The cover of my dissertation in Holistic Science at Schumacher College.

Let me spin you a yarn.

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.

Eager to build on my developing leadership skills and nurture an emerging interest in social innovation, I began an internship with THNK School of Creative Leadershipa "C-school" combining the best of design thinking, business model innovation, and entrepreneurship for social impact to envision and create systemic change across global paradigms.

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 just started a position at the Royal Society of Arts in their Fellowship team.
