I am an inclusive designer practicing participatory action research and experience design in multidisciplinary areas including accessibility, health, education, and arts and culture. I hold a Master of Design in Inclusive Design from OCAD University with a specialization in the design of Healthcare Environments; and an Honours Bachelor of Arts in Studio Art from McMaster University.
I have a deep interest in understanding the mismatches between people and the objects, environments, and systems we engage with every day that shape how we live, work, and play. I believe barriers and exclusions are opportunities to reimagine bold responsive strategies that inspire positive transformation and resilience in the face of wicked problems. Through inclusive approaches to design that incorporate the perspectives and lived experiences of diverse people, communities can grow and thrive. My design practice is committed to improving responsive products, services, spaces, and systems by working closely with many different communities through participatory action and advocacy.
