January 2024 update:

I'm currently working on a couple of books. The first is a graphic novel about Vancouver supported by the Canada Council (co-author, in collaboration with Meg Holden). The second is about the new Climate Lab in the Lachine neighbourhood of Montreal (illustrator). 

More about me:

I completed my BA in English, my Post-Baccalaureate Degree in Social Policy, and my Master's Degree in Urban Studies from Simon Fraser University. 


Professionally I've engaged in work that lies at the intersection of academic research, knowledge democracy and social equity. Past places I've worked include Simon Fraser University, Bakau Consulting, Women Transforming Cities, Migrant Worker's Centre, the Downtown Eastside Women's Centre, and the Coalition Against the Trafficking of Women and Girls International.


I am also the co-founder of City in Colour Co-operative
