Co-Executive Director, Engagement & Operations
I joined QMUNITY in 2015, working as the Education & Training Coordinator, Program Manager, and now Co-Executive Director. I’m living and working on unceded lands of Musqueam, Squamish, and Tsleil-Waututh Nations, and was raised on Haudenosaune and Mississauga lands, identifying as a cis-man, queer and white settler with British, German, and Swiss ancestry.
By trade and by passion, I’m a facilitator and convenor of dialogue and community engagement. Committed to unearthing and mobilizing shared and collective wisdom, designing intentional spaces in which marginalized knowledge and lived experiences can be centred, and advancing human rights through education and community building.
My priority is to work to be in good relations with those closest to me first – fractal and emergent movement and coalition building. Our pursuit for a more just world is only as strong as the coalitions we build and the relationships we value – collaborators, co-conspirators and partners welcomed! Get in touch to chat about how QMUNITY can support your justice, equity, diversity, and inclusion work; lead or consult on community and public engagement initiatives; plan a workshop, conference, or speaker series.
When not waxing poetic about queer revolutions or addressing the toxicity of misogyny, you might find me on some sports fields (oh, the irony) tossing a plastic, flying disc, or swinging a tennis racquet. My main mode of transportation is cycling, and I frequently pine for the long Vancouver summer days so I can try to survive ill-planned and under-prepared day-long bike trips.
