A creative and an entrepreneur actively supporting innovative projects that have a positive impact, and making things happen for businesses and passionate individuals.
After earning a degree in Graphic Design at OCAD University, I completed a certificate in Digital Strategy & Communications Management at the University of Toronto.
As Creative Director of Now Creative Group, I work with a team of creatives and strategists to provide Design, Digital, Marketing and Media services to startups, businesses and non-profits. I also produce content for my own media properties and Now Digital Network. Now’s clients range from startups to TELUS and CIBC.
I’m very passionate about helping others to create social change. After traveling to developing countries as a student, I formed a nonprofit to help children in the developing world receive an education and to empower local youth to become leaders. Today, ACCESS focuses on supporting youth who are creating their own projects and organizations for positive social change, and we now offer micro-grants as The ACCESS Fund.
I have spoken at a variety of events, conferences and workshops within the Toronto startup scene and nonprofit sector. He has also mentored students from high school to postsecondary on starting their own initiatives, businesses and careers. I share my journey and tips on my blog, podcast and YouTube show.
