Quickbooks Certified Pro Advisor
2x ECMA Graphic Designer of the Year
I’m a Montreal native who calls Cape Breton home for the past 20+ years. I’m a professional drummer, former CEO of OutFront Productions Inc., my design agency that I operated for two decades, during which I won two East Coast Music Awards (ECMA) for Graphic Designer of the Year. I’m obsessed with great coffee, music and technology. I’m a science geek, a tireless seeker of knowledge, an admitted Candy Crush Soda addict and, I do believe there’s an app for everything. As Executive Director of a busy non-profit cultural centre with a staff of 20+ for the past 7 years, I’m grateful to be running my own business again, while being able to help other non-profits and small businesses on their path to success.
