Artist Bio or Statement / Bio de l’artiste ou la déclaration

Following a career in education, I worked at Industry Canada (Federal Government) as a senior advisor (Education and Editorial Content) to Canada’s SchoolNet Program.

During my 9 years with Canada’s SchoolNet, I was part of an extraordinarily creative team, doing project design, reviewing and editing. For example, I was Editor of SchoolNet’s (non-virtual) magazine, that went out to all schools in Canada, and I designed and worked alongside SchoolNet’s GrassRoots Program, and SchoolNet’s Network of Innovative Schools, giving many talks and workshops over the years at Canadian Universities and Departments of Education.

I am not a pencil artist, but instead am a composer (mostly of chamber, electroacoustic, and computer music). My resulting familiarity with programming, researching and learning new software and operating systems, as well as my educational and editorial experience, afford me a wonderful opportunity to serve PAS behind the scenes.
