I strongly believe in the tenants of DIY and upcycling and that if we are to build a healthier more sustainable society we must learn to do great things with items that many would otherwise throw out. Because of this I spend a lot of time salvaging trashed and broken pieces of electronics for use in future projects and bringing old machines back to life. I carry this DIY approach into my activism and organizing as well. Using my vast network and contacts to build something often from nothing.
I currently work as the Social Media and Comms Coordinator at Toronto Newsgirls Boxing Club, as a part time Researcher and Designer for Jane Finch Action Against Poverty, and as a general Freelance web developer and mac repair specialist. I am a committed community and labour organizer having worked with over 90 different activist, labour/union, grassroots, and community organizations in positions as varied as graphic design, harm reduction worker, fundraiser, programming and board development, and policy research.
