I am an activist and media maker and parent living in Vancouver’s Downtown East Side (DTES). I have 25 years experience leading local and international media, culture and social justice projects. I've founded community radio, TV, print, web, festival, and space projects, including the Annual Under the Volcano Festival. I have photographed and written on human rights and solidarity work from Central America and East Asia, and here on unceded First Nation's Territories.

In recent years, in addition to my own art practice and curating of exhibitions, I worked as Executive Director of Gallery Gachet, an artist-run centre providing cultural services for artists with mental health, sexual abuse, and trauma survivor issues.

Currently, I work as the Executive Director of W2, helping build Canada’s first grassroots cross-platform community media centre opening at the Woodward’s redevelopment in 2010. W2 was incubated at Gallery Gachet before becoming independent in 2008.

About the Sudbury Working Group

The Sudbury working-group of The Media Co-op was formed to create independent media in the North, to speak to our issues and outlooks on our communities as well as the world around us. Independent media provides an avenue for people who are wishing to gain critical perspective on the issues that matter most to us, and to give a voice to those people and stories that you won't find in the mainstream media.
