I’m the Managing Director of OCAD U CO.

For over a decade, I’ve been helping large organizations develop radical customer-centricity through design-led innovation. I’ve gone end-to-end on breakthrough innovation projects: from identifying new and emerging opportunities, to standing up MVP launches with tens of thousands of users.

My work has involved leading strategy, capability-building, and breakthrough concept development efforts for firms like BMO, Great-West Life, Barrick, City of Toronto, RBC, TD, Toronto International Film Festival (TIFF), and others.

Prior to leading OCAD U CO, I led large-scale design-led innovation programs for some of Canada’s largest organizations at Doblin, the human-centred innovation consultancy at Deloitte.

I’m a proud OCAD U alum, with a Master of Design in Strategic Foresight and Innovation.
