I am committed to analog/digital community development, and follow the on/offline statuses of niches and subcultures.
I am an artist who makes videos, performances, recordings and combinations of these things.
Much of my practice involves re-interpreting the salonnièrre canon of history (or herstory) as a living portrait via immersive, participatory events and projects. From 2011-2012, I curated Sheroes, a limited-run art event series that brought together on and offline works that playfully and performatively explore the iconography and cultures of fandom.

I conceptualize and coordinate neighbourhood-building art projects in underserved communities for non-profits and social enterprises.
Since 2007, I’ve worked on an ongoing basis with Art Starts, a pioneering non-profit that uses the arts as a vehicle for social change. Key projects include One World: New Generation, The Style Council, and urban griots of t-dot.
I have contributed to a variety of publications online and in print, including the National Post, Worn Fashion Journal, & This Recording. I was a social media columnist for Canada’s most-read national daily Metro, and a style columnist for the now defunct Toronto alt-weekly EYE. Currently, I am the lifestyle editor for BLOUIN ARTINFO Canada.
I’ve developed social and viral content initiatives for a range of organizations and companies, including Moses Znaimer’s ZoomerMedia.
I live and work in Toronto. Here’s how to reach me:
