I’m a professional designer, educator, coach, and evaluator who works with organizations focused on innovation — doing something new to achieve impact — within human services for social impact.
I’m a consultant and educator based in Toronto focused on innovation design and evaluation. As President of Cense Ltd I work with mostly non-profits, governments, and healthcare organizations on developing and evaluating innovations in their human services and programming. I bring together design thinking, a systems perspective, and an emphasis on applied learning through such approaches as developmental evaluation, human-centred design, and strategic foresight. I am a member of the graduate faculty in the Faculty of Design, OCAD University and Dalla Lana School of Public Health, University of Toronto.
