|     TRAIL DEVELOPMENT

I am an entrepreneur; it is my goal and great pleasure to invest energy, ideas and innovation into the creation of opportunities, experiences and successful projects. I specialize in making artistic projects and ventures economically feasible by organizing and orchestrating the elements of production.  

 

My professional experiences have centered on cultural production, business management, property development and small enterprise. I have a broad understanding of the functions that make up a successful enterprise.

 

My background includes experience in the management of public events and the development of private sector business in diverse areas, including: operations, regulatory compliance, finance/funding, accounting, web-based marketing, community & creative sector development.

 

My education in philosophy and development studies has given me a unique capacity to examine my experiences in business and event management, I see the important role well-organized public events play in today's enterprise driven creative economy and socio-political landscape.

 

I have undertaken entrepreneurial projects in a number of diverse fields, including: independent arts production, venue facilitation, not-for-profits, property development, local economies, community development, ecological sustainability, internet application development and website design. I have served as a board member for Theatre Nova Scotia, The Center for Art Tapes, Red Clay Studio Society, CFAT, and Kenomee Trails Society, as well as working with the North End Business Association developing their cultural programming.
