- My Summary
Bilingual (French/English) IDC Staff Intructor with a passion for management, teaching, underwater photography, digital media and ocean conservation. I’m currently working in Sanur, Bali as an IDC Staff Instructor and learning from experienced mentors.
I’m a former digital media executive. I spent the last decade working with emerging media and web technologies. As a photographer and citizen journalist I covered events including Olympic games in Turin, Beijing and Vancouver, Dalai Lama’s visit to Vancouver and rock bands and tech luminaries at SXSW.
Winner of a 2006 Canadian New Media Award, I created and taught several courses for Vancouver Film School and I was an advisor on various Boards. I participated in the Canada World Youth cultural exchange program as well as various social change, activism and fundraising campaigns and training courses.
I'm a firm believer in our abilities to enable change. Our actions and dedication can make a difference. That's why I have helped raise over $20,000 for Project AWARE through various actions and creative fundraiser events during the past year.
You can see my most recent Project AWARE actions with Blue Season Bali - November 2011 to June 2012. http://www.projectaware.org/diver/blueseasonbali
Now, I’m following my dreams; unabling changes, utilizing digital media, diving while exploring our planet Ocean.
