Tech, blogging, volunteering, graphic/web design, photography, digital activism and community-based campaigns are some of the things that I am passionate about. I am inquisitive by nature. I ask many questions of locally-elected representatives and publish the results online. Councillors love the attention and have warmly reviewed my work, publicly stating that I’m a ‘political agitator‘, ‘trouble-maker‘ and many more endearing names!
