My Community

Outside of all things related to communications and design (and psychology more generally), my passion is dance. I have been taking classes at Raino Dance since 2012 and performed in a cross-disciplinary production titled Lustrare in February 2017.

I also volunteer with Dance Victoria whenever I can. Being part of the dance community in Victoria is an ongoing source of delight, connection and creative inspiration.

In another volunteer role, I sit on the Executive Board of GDC Vancouver Island as their Communications Chair. I am proud to belong to an organization that strives to improve the world through design and continually advance the profession of communications and graphic design.
