Welcome to what keeps me busy. I like variety, and without variety I get bored. In everything I'm involved in, I put forward my best possible work, drawing from knowledge of my varying experiences. The interesting (and my favourite) thing however, is when any or all of the things I'm involved in at any given time, intersect.
Presently, I work in government relations, public policy, and public engagement, often with a climate and sustainability focus.
My previous experience surrounded very different work including the public and private sectors. I worked for The Centre for Greening Government, assisting in decarbonizing the infrastructure and processes of the federal government. I hold a Master's of Climate Change (MCC) at the University of Waterloo. I worked with Protect Our Winters as a Research Assistant. My role involved assisting with research on the Electric Vehicle (EV) transition and national park visitation in Canada, GHG emissions from national park visitation, and the development of parks tourism decarbonization scenarios. This work was performed in collaboration with Ph.D. candidate Natalie Knowles, under the supervision of Dr. Daniel Scott of the University of Waterloo. I also received a Bachelor's degree at Carleton University, majoring in computer science and minoring in technology, society and environment studies.
I worked with the Government of Canada on the Open Government Portal project, which aims to provide government data and information in a format everyone can understand. I also worked in software development at Shopify. I dedicate much of my spare time to photography and climate conservation. I am a member of Protect Our Winters and previously volunteered as a member of the Chief Information Officer of Canada's Digital Youth Advisory Committee. I also continue to look for ways to support the community I am living in.
I invite you to look around the site, check out what else keeps my busy, and contact me if you'd like!
