With so many serendipitous moments - highschool art class with Mr. Wallwork, taking digital design at the Vancouver Film School, dumpster diving at the Sechelt dump. And now I'm lucky I get paid to be creative and learn new skills. Plus I get to hang out with some pretty kewl peeps!

I have a Fine Arts Degree (yup - majored in painting) with a New Media Certificate from the Vancouver Film School. I also received my Community Capacity Building Citation from Capilano University last year.

I'm rockin' and rollin' these days and hoping to up my skills. I work at Capilano University as a Digital Communications Specialist. At CapU, I'm also able to share my upcycling experience and community building mojo. What a perfect fit!

My side gig, Thrifty By Design, is still going strong. Since 2012, I've hosted more than 80 Crafternoons (upcycling workshops) throughout Vancouver meaning I've crafted with 1,000+ participants, authored a crafty book ('Raw Crafts'), been interviewed by various local media, spoken at events and met tons of FAB people.

Here's to upping my game - developing some new digital communications skills, hosting more Crafternoons and partnering up with more kick butt people and community organizations. Maybe you and I can make some digital, crafty magic happen together!

Stay sparkly & share your awesomeness!
