Clients

Read feedback on my work from selected clients and collaborators here.

My clients typically come from diverse disciplines--academia, local and regional government, and non-profit and Indigenous organizations. What they tend to share is a commitment to presenting their work with style and precision, and working toward a kinder and more sustainable world.

I''m especially honoured to work for organizations that empower Indigenous peoples, and to assist people who are working and achieving in English as a second language. Diversity makes us stronger.
