For the last 10 years, I’ve been focused on connecting and synthesizing the worlds of organizational development and social change. I’ve worked with community organizations in Canada as a facilitator with the Centre for Community Organizations, as an independent consultant, and as a volunteer and board member with Santropol Roulant. Prior to that, I was involved in community organizing, participatory budgeting, and micro-enterprise development initiatives in the United States. In 2010, Warren and I left Montreal for an open-ended journey to visit social change projects in Africa and India and have recently settled in Cape Town, South Africa where we continue to grow the work of Organization Unbound.

While completing my undergrad at McGill University, I co-founded a number of initiatives that are transforming the culture, curriculum and operations of the university toward sustainability. Some of the most noteworthy include the McGill Food Systems Project and the $2.5 million Sustainability Projects Fund. See my TEDx presentation on the process. Since arriving in Cape Town in December 2011 to work with Organization Unbound, I have been involved with a number of social change organizations in education, empowerment, and woman’s health. Most recently, I have focused my attention on an international project seeking to stimulate and strengthen social movements.
