ADDITIONAL ACTIVITIES

Since 2001 I have been involved in visual arts coordination and exhibition in a variety of ways.  From December 2001 to June 2002 I worked as co-director of the rather infamous Art System gallery in Toronto, curating and co-curating several exhibitions and events.  Since moving to Montreal in 2002 I have been involved with articule, one of the oldest artist run centres in Canada.  I have worked as a freelance gallery technician, assisted numerous students with exhibition coordination, and taught children.  For several years I was employed at Toronto's legendary Cameron House tavern.  From 2008 to 2015 I worked as a custom picture framer.  Since 2005 I have exhibited at Montreal's annual small press fair, ExpoZine.  Basically, since leaving high school, I have managed to keep my work life almost entirely within the visual arts milieu.
