I was born and raised in Hamilton, Ontario, a city most known for its abundance of steel and Tim Horton’s. I left the roost to study at Queen’s University and at The London School of Economics.

In 2011 I setup Hackney Laces, a community club for teenage girls in East London. Alongside eight brilliant women, our two sister clubs (Limehouse and South London) and an army of supporters, we’re on a mission to get as many girls playing football as possible – raising aspirations along the way.

I spend my days working at Pentagram and I’m also on the board of parkrun, a global movement that helps people live healthier happier lives.
