Lifestyle Design

January 2019 Update 

Canadian Expat in San Francisco since late Summer 2018!

I am a Business Development and Innovation Partnerships professional, health and wellness advocate and 2x Founder via Social Impact Fashion Startup, LookLab, and my Personal Development Events.

Group of Young Visionaries invited to Tel Aviv University’s All-Access Mission for Entrepreneurs and Innovators. Diverse North American Cohort at Welcome Dinner.

“How do you have time for it all?”

I get asked this a lot! Along with the passing comment, ” Wow, you’re always so busy!”.

Yes it’s true, I do love to plan events and activities and I get energized from creation and connection. I believe what truly allows my to tackle multiple priorities and projects is however, is this: finding alignment.

Sure I attend a lot of industry business and networking events from early in the morning to late at night and there’s a solid reason for that! It serves my career goals of meeting potential business partners and also achieves my personal goals of constant learning and making connections. Some of my most fulfilling moments are when I can facilitate a meaningful introduction for someone and teach them something new.

My Why? And what I aim to share

I enjoy following Tim Ferriss, author of 4-Hour Work Week and Lifestyle Design Blog, and how he interviews the best of the best, from Entrepreneurs and Scientists to Athletes and Celebrities, to learn habits and strategies for living fully and reaching your potential.

Attending workshops and reading books about living more fully is simply one small step, so I want to take this process to the next level by sharing my experience and teaching others through this blog. I hope you can learn a few things and of course, reach out if you have questions or comments!

Highlight Reel of my Favourite Recent Posts

I thrive off of creation – building new programs and partnerships, and enabling meaningful connections for others – be it for business purposes or personal development. I aim to share my journey in this bustling new city of San Francisco that encourages an entrepreneurial mindset and inspires connectivity at every turn! Thanks to my background in Competitive Athletics, I have a honed the drive and discipline to get sh*t done, live my best life and make a positive impact!
