About Me

I am a communications strategist, designer and developer who has worked in public affairs, market research and politics for much of my career.

I believe technology should take care of the mundane and allow people to concentrate on the relationships and long-term goals that build a brand. Time spent improving user experience is time well spent and a bad user interface is bad customer service. Innovation has to focus on people.

I’ve always been fascinated by design and human behaviour. I love to improve things, whether it’s a design or a process. That’s driven me to be proactive, and it’s compelled me to be a more concise communicator. Where resources are limited, It’s important to differentiate between the ‘ask’ and the need. It’s equally important to anticipate how the needs of your organization (and your team) will change five years from now and to pursue constructive frontiers of innovation.

What I’m Currently Working On

Pollara Strategic Insights

I started at Pollara decades ago when I first moved to the city, and I’m excited to be back. Pollara is a dynamic environment to work in, and their website needed to reflect that excitement, and their culture of innovation.


Aurora Strategy Group

Friends at Aurora Strategy Group approached me about a Website redesign and a brand refresh. Aurora Strategy Group helps Stakeholders develop communications strategies that explain their contributions and participate in public policy discussions at all levels of government. Aurora needed a new, more dynamic website so I’ve had some fun playing with video and animation over the last two weeks.

Jenna Muirhead Photography

Jenna Muirhead is a commercial photographer in Toronto and certainly the best event photographer I’ve ever worked with. As photographer for two Premiers we worked together pretty closely for a decade, and that continues to this day.

Ontario Liberal Party

The Main party website was the hub for all online activities; volunteers, action committees, donations, ticket purchases and memberships to name a few. The specification had evolved over years of stakeholder consultations, both formal and informal, with the Ontario Liberal Party Fundraisers, Executive Council, Premier’s Office, Caucus and Riding Associations. We would encourage account creation and facilitate greater ease of use for return visitors, but unlike typical sites, there was no will to require users to register prior to making a donation as is typical in more conventional eCommerce settings. This presented some complex branching that had to be modeled, tested and secured.
