About

I have worked as far and wide as Kosovo, China, Mali, Bhutan… and many other countries.

Since 2004 I have been in Ottawa, Canada, providing assistance to communities and individuals from all walks of life.

My main areas of work are as follows:

  • not-for-profit business, social enterprise, and contract management
  • concept development, grant strategy and grant writing
  • project and program development, and
  • support to artists and arts organizations

I also contract small renovation, equipment acquisition, and infrastructure projects for not-for-profits and homeowners.

I work in English and French.

New for 2021
Watch for some new publishing.  Watch for opportunities arising from pandemic / post-pandemic investments.  Think arts, housing, and social profit action.
