I was an instant fan of the grand romances, opulent fashion, and seeing brown faces as heroes on the big screen. My love of film led to a 10+ year career in journalism beginning as a film reviewer, then moving into current affairs and arts reporting at CBC Radio. I continue to advocate for Calgary as a public affairs professional while emphasizing a commitment to equity, diversity, inclusion and accessibility to truly reflect us all. I believe public funding for arts is a crucial part of our story, one that enriches our city, entertains our hearts, and drives our economy.
