And away we go!

I’m diving back into my website. Maybe I’ll be able to stay on top of this version. We’ll start out slowly, ok?

I’ll be using this website to share some of the creative endeavours I will be working on. These could be exhibitions, photobooks/magazines, photo or video assignments/productions, podcasts, workshops, collaborations with other local artists and whatever else I might be thinking about at the time.

I retired from the City of Ottawa at the end of October 2020. I worked as an Arts Programmer at Shenkman Arts Centre, that beautiful building in OrlĂ©ans, Ontario, in east Ottawa. The best parts of my job involved working with local and regional artists, and I’m going to keep doing that on my own. I already miss working with my dear, former colleagues. What a team we had. COVID disrupted operations but the spirit lives on in that special building. Things will get rolling there again, and I will be cheering them on. On my own website, I can be as biased as I want, so there will probably be a fair amount of news about Shenkman Arts Centre (and Meridian Theatres at Centrepointe) in this humble space. I will still be checking out as many other venues as I can, and if anything catches my eye, there will be something about it here.

So, this site will be about what I do, and what others are doing. I hope there is interest, but ultimately, it will kind of be a way for me to organize and make sense of my time on this planet.
