Are you a small business, start-up, individual or group in need of guidance on how best to make use of the internet? I can take your website design, web strategy, brand and business to the next level. Perhaps you are starting up your own web services company, why not take advantage of my 20+ years expereince.
I have had the privilege of working one-on-one with some of the most creative names in the entertainment world, and my aim is to share the workings of their creative processes with my mentees.
I am both a practitioner and mentor, consultant and go to person for emerging Creative Industries practitioners, companies and organisations.
I can help you find clarity in your decision making and make forward thinking strategic steps in your Creative Industries development, projects and career path.
My perspective will give you another viewpoint into the issues you seek to find solutions for, including: content development; career development; industry engagement; skills development; funding guidelines and applications, networking.
I believe in and pursue the ‘Renaissance Man’ career: striving to learn new things when the current things get old. That’s why I’ve worked in entertainment, product development, hi-tech manufacturing, IT, print/publishing and a little bit on-the-side script writing consultation. I’m a Program Manager now with a government agency but still do some creative stuff on the side. Some of my past mentees still keep in touch with me, and all of them remark on my even-keeled disposition and how well I collaborate with business partners and team members, stakeholders and clients. (and they like my occasional dry sense of humor). I expect to go out of this world, still doing something that interests me, still learning new things, and still coaching a younger generation on how to get something out of a career, and out of life.
I’m someone that can encourage others by leading by example and opening new paths for my mentees that were roadblocked in the past. Through my experience in the entertainment field, I can show you how to get started in a new exciting career if you desire or if you’re stuck in a rut not sure what you want to do, I can help you find your way with the support that many mentees lack.
I can share my professional experience and strategies that will work specifically in Canada. At the same time, I believe that creative process at all is universal for any country.
