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 our 1,000+ 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 and the communities where they live be work. Prior to Vancity, my background was in digital production and independent filmmaking.

I sit on the boards of the BC Non-Profit Housing Association, the provincial umbrella organization for the non-profit housing sector, Modo Co-operative and was board chair of the Vancity Community Foundation.

Currently, I am writing a book on leadership lessons gained from my dozen years as a filmmaker, and am a longtime blogger, seasoned speaker and dialogue facilitator.
