The shamrocks that grow,
And may trouble avoid you
Wherever you go."

I can finally justify preferring to work in low light at a (quasi) messy desk!
I’ve written about how creativity works in the brain before, and I found it really useful to understand this process. Or, I should say, multiple processes. There’s so much going on in the brain during creativity that science is still trying to pin down exactly how it all works. What we do know is which [...]

I love how there's an app for just about everything now.
Break bad habits such as smoking and nail biting with the help of these mobile apps.

To boost energy, I try to achieve both each day.
We've known for a while that exercise can boost your energy level and your productivity, but if you get a short, high-intensity workout first thing in the morning, it can give you the same boost as a cup of coffee--and you'll enjoy that effect much longer.

Story
Tagline
eLearning Officer / Web Developer / Ski Instructor / Music Promoter
Introduction
I have a diverse background in business and arts, developing different skills from former and current positions and experiences, which have allowed me to become very versatile for any future opportunities.

Since moving to Calgary in May 2009, I have worked with the non-profit Calgary Spoken Word Society as the Administrative Assistant/ Artist Liaison; have co-founded & managed an arts management company, Indie403; helped online students as the Online Delivery Office at Bow Valley College; and volunteered for many cultural festivals. 

I am fortunate to be in a position to help people achieve their dreams and develop their passions in numerous creative ways, whether it is in music, education, poetry or elsewhere and hope to continue this path of learning the different aspects of business and arts by gaining knowledge from different organizations and experimenting with new technology.

Great family mountain. Good mix of beginner and intermediate runs with some more difficult pitches. Glades are improving each year.
