What pays the bills revolves around programming large scale festivals, as well as handling marketing/social for various clients. I’ve been fortunate to work on projects such as BreakOut West, the JUNO Awards, TED Talks, the 2010 Winter Olympics, Canadian Idol, Canadian Country Music Awards, and dozens of festivals in western Canada. One of the most unusual subplots to my life story involves getting thrown into TED Talks world and producing events with Amanda Palmer that have led me to meeting an astronaut, a former vice-president, and being included in Amanda’s book. I’m a serial social entrepreneur and connector and most recently created a secret society of do-gooders. I’m always on the lookout to create new connections with inspiring people. I’m an outgoing INFJ.
