About

Graduate Researcher | Web Developer | Communications Specialist

I’m graduate student (on hiatus) with a passion for problem solving, education and web development. While working on a PhD in Political Science, I’ve also nurtured a deep interest in technology and web programming through freelancing and personal projects. In addition, I’m the co-chair and technical lead for Drawdown Toronto, a young not-for-profit dedicated to promoting climate action.
