Canadian in Brooklyn. I moved to NYC to transform ocean-recovered plastic into next-generation textiles. Now, I lead process design for a biotech coffee company in Harlem.

Chemical engineering graduate from University of Waterloo. When everyone else was heading west for oil, I chose to explore other options. Choosing the unconventional has served me well, and given me some amazing opportunities. I've supported a drilling crew on a barge in the middle of a lake, and excavated an illegal landfill from the 1950s. I've optimised sanitation programs at Canada's largest cheese factory. I joined a literal garbage factory, turning municipal refuse into pellets to be burned as an alternative for coal. I believe we need an inter-disciplinary approach for our world's increasingly complex problems.

Embroidery artist and (very) small business owner. I love using traditional techniques to explore modern themes. Working with textiles is an excellent way to create something that will last in a throw-away culture. I love connecting with other artists and working together on collaborative design projects.
