Food Story Adventures

I’ve teamed up with Earth Rhythms to put together unique experiences in our beautiful Annapolis Valley to tell the food story of this place. We’ll be launching experiences in spring 2019.


How to Do Text to Speech for Mac

How to get your mac to read text to you Hi folks, I made a quick video on how to get your mac to read an article or any text on your computer to you so. I did this today because I had limited time and I wanted to listen to...

Announcing Shift! Food

Hello friends, I have big news, I'm testing out doing more food work and less marketing work. Makes sense right? As you may know, over the past 3 years I've needed to cut gluten, dairy, and refined sugar completely out of my diet. When I first needed to shift my food...

How to Make Dairy-Free Coconut Yogurt

About Me

Food and community are at the heart of what I do.  I’m passionate about creating economic and community models that work for humans and our planet. Models that are designed to create thriving economies, not growth based economies.

My work wrestles with the question: how we can we work together to re-weave and re-author our connection to the earth and each other?

Currently, I’m transitioning from doing marketing for food based social enterprises across Canada, which has been my focus for the past 8 years, to doing even more work in my community in Wolfville, Nova Scotia. I’m not taking on new clients, but you can see my work and find free resources under: Marketing

Currently I spend my time developing recipes and culinary workshops  (ShiftFood.org), building a wood fired community oven and developing programming for it (FrontStreetOven.ca) and planning one-of-a-kind regenerative  experiences (hands on, food, culture, story, nature, music etc.)  in the Annapolis Valley (EarthRhythms.ca).

If this peaks your curiousity, I invite you to join my email community here

Values for how I work: Generosity, Inclusion & Diversity, Respect & Kindness, Supportive & Encouraging, Lifelong Learning, Collaboration & Co-operation
