About me: I’ve spent 25+ years working with youth on cool projects all around the world. I’m the founder of three companies and one charity. I’m a clothing designer, author, speaker, and driver (since no one else has a drivers license in the office).
Favourite city: London. I lived there for almost three years. I love Toronto too, but maybe it's just too familiar.
My Urban Attribute: Diversity. I am a variety junkie – from music to food to film to culture.
Guilty pleasure: Brownies. Duh!
My role at YouthfulCities: Driver, half baked visionary, cinema seat index indicator collector, official word of the day supplier.
Want to join us in our mission to make cities more youthful? We regularly hold summits, take surveys, host hackathons, and more. Take a look to see how you can work with us to make cities better.
Perhaps our favorite thing about youthfulness is the fact that we care about having fun. Building a better future should be an exercise in joy, and we believe in bringing play and excitement into every aspect of city life.
What would the world look like through someone else’s eyes? How are our experiences unique? What built the systems we live in today? These are all questions that define our future, and we believe we need to keep asking them.
Young people are shifting what it means to be successful. They’re starting businesses, leaving the beaten path, and inventing a new kind of future for themselves. How will youth invent the future of cities?
