I am the CEO of Brightside Community Homes Foundation, an organization dedicated to making housing accessible for those who struggle to meet the demands of market housing in Vancouver, one of the most unaffordable cities on the planet. My team ensures that residents have safe, stable and appropriate housing, while developing new units to meet the pressing need in the community.
I was a long-time executive at Vancity, performing multiple leadership roles at the community-focused credit union serving the financial needs of their half million member-owners.
I am the Board Chair of the Vancity Community Foundation overseeing development of 312 Main, a social and economic innovation centre in Vancouver’s Downtown Eastside. I was elected to the board of Modo, a car-sharing co-operative in Metro Vancouver, Vancouver Island and the Okanagan.
Currently, I am writing a book on leadership lessons gained from my dozen years as an independent filmmaker. I’m a longtime blogger, seasoned speaker, dialogue facilitator and recently I became an amateur music producer, proudly producing my son’s albums who records under the name Spectrasounds.
