I offer clients extensive experience in arts leadership, board governance, organizational turnaround, and strategic visioning and planning. I have also had the privilege of working with and learning from nationally-recognized IBPOC leaders implementing transformational Justice, Equity, Diversity, and Inclusion initiatives and Decolonization and Indigenization processes.
Over the past ten years I have helped lead turnarounds at the Vancouver Recital Society, the Canadian Music Centre in BC, and, as President of the Board of Directors, at the BC Alliance for Arts + Culture.
I am today the BC Director of the Canadian Music Centre and a Sessional Instructor at Capilano University's Department of Arts & Entertainment Management. In addition to chairing the Arts Alliance, I also serve as a member of the Hugh Davidson Fund Committee at the Victoria Foundation.
Before moving back to Vancouver, I spent twenty years in New York as a Vice President of Columbia Artists Management and head of my own agency, IAG, managing Grammy Award-winning artists and producing concert tours on three continents for European and North American orchestras, dance companies, and ensembles.
In addition to chairing the BC Alliance for Arts + Culture, I have also served as President of both the Paris Place Strata Association and Gays & Lesbians of UBC; Vice President of the Board of Directors of the Vancouver Recital Society (VRS) and of the False Creek Residents Association; Chair of the Hugh Davidson Fund Committee for the Victoria Foundation; and as a member of the Board of Directors of the Langley Community Music School (LCMS) and of both the Arts & Culture Policy Council and Community Arts Council of the City of Vancouver. During my board service, I also chaired a Futures Committee for the VRS and an organizational task force for LCMS.
I live in Vancouver, BC with my husband, Tom. My pronouns are he/him/his, and I am deeply grateful to have the privilege of working, writing, painting, and taking the occasional photograph on the lands of the Coast Salish Peoples, including the Tsleil-Waututh (səl̓ilw̓ətaʔɬ), Squamish (Sḵwx̱wú7mesh Úxwumixw), and Musqueam (xʷməθkʷəy̓əm) First Nations.
