Welcome. Bienvenue.

My area of work is broadly public outreach and stakeholder engagement. I am the managing partner in EN Consulting Group, a boutique consulting firm located at the Centre for Social Innovation (Spadina) in Toronto.

Professional and personal interests include architecture, urban planning, the encouragement of  transit and pedestrian focussed public realms, democratic reform, community capacity building, and economic inequality.

Since 2013, I have been working with colleagues Asher Mercer and Natalie Romano at CSI Spadina to launch The People’s Queen Street an initiative to reimagine Toronto’s Queen Street as a defining public space for the city: as a space that prioritizes people and enhances transit. In June 2014 The People’s Queen Street won a Toronto Community Foundation Vital Innovation Award. 

A life-sustaining passion for the arts is actuated in writing poetry and involvement in Toronto poetry communities. I have been curating and hosting the reading series Livewords since February 2008.

My first full collection of poetry The Fissures of Our Throats was published this fall by Guernica Editions and officially launched in Toronto on November 2, 2014.

My political affiliations and sympathies are progressive, democratic and liberal. I have memberships in the Liberal Party of Canada and Ontario Liberal Party.
