I started producing interactive projects almost 20 years ago. Here are a few of my favourites:
As the Manager of Brand and Digital Strategy at The Canada Council for the Arts between 2014-17 I led the redesign and rebuild of the www.canadacouncil.ca website and worked closely with Jam3 to redesign and rebuild the www.artbank.ca website, among many other projects.
The Media League was a web startup I co-founded with The Jonah Group in 2012. Over 100 high schools participated in our competitive creativity league, uploading, rating and commenting on hundreds of original artworks between 2012-15 using our custom interactive platform.
When I was a Senior Consultant at 76design from 2006-2009 I produced interactive projects for over 25 clients. One of those projects was BOPL’s Book Club, an interactive environment that I conceived and produced for kids to create and share book reviews, literacy games and more. It was a 2008 Webby Award Honoree.
Electronic Cities was a collaborative eLearning Platform I produced in 2004 with C7Media when I was working as the Co-Director of Digifest, at that time the largest festival of digital design and culture in Canada. During this period I also managed The Design Exchange’s immersive SGI/Onxy environment, known as the Advanced Visualization Centre, where I worked with Bruce Mau on an immersive version of his Massive Change project, among other things.

In 2001 Apple commissioned Globalhood, the company I co-founded with Freddy Nyiti, to develop and pilot the New Media Circus, a concept for a mobile content generation fair we had pitched to them.
