Story
Tagline
Designer, Entrepreneur, Activist
Introduction

As Creative Director of Now Creative Group, I work with a team of creative and business professionals to provide Design, Digital, Marketing and Media services to startups, businesses and non-profits. Now Digital Network is where I manage a network of online media properties.

I’m passionate about helping others to create social change. After traveling to developing countries, I founded ACCESS to help children in the developing world receive an education and to empower local youth to become leaders. Today, ACCESS focuses on supporting youth who are creating their own projects and organizations for positive social change.

After earning a degree in Graphic Design at OCAD University, I completed a certificate in Digital Strategy & Communications Management at the University of Toronto.

My writing can be found in Toronto Star Global Voices, my blog at DesignCharityLife.com, on ACCESS’ Speak Up for Change blog, and Now Digital Network’s Lifestyle Kick.
