I connect people and ideas to create social and economic impact. I build public private partnerships to fight inequality. I have done so through international criminal law and intellectual property law, global health, software development entrepreneurship and education.
I currently work with North America's governments, workforce development organizations, colleges and universities to leverage LinkedIn Learning Solutions to close skills gaps. I aim to expand economic opportunity for every member of the workforce via LinkedIn's Economic Graph data and Learning content and platform. I am passionate about supporting disadvantaged groups such as newcomers and refugees, indigenous populations, the formerly incarcerated and people with disabilities.
Formerly a startup and IP lawyer, I have always preferred networking to drafting. I founded Lighthouse Labs, an immersive software development bootcamp, I advise Code for Canada, and I am on the Advisory Board of the Hot Docs Cinema.
I have advised the non-profit behind the Health Impact Fund, a new means of incentivizing access to medicines, taught global health at McMaster University, consulted for tech accelerators and law firms, and invested in and advised a number of startups.
I have clerked for the Supreme Court of Israel and articled at the intellectual property litigation boutique Gilbert's LLP. In addition to acting as the Executive Director of McGill’s International Criminal Law Clinic and Chair of the Global Education Platform's Technology and Delivery Committee, I have worked for Foreign Affairs Canada, McGill’s Centre for IP Policy and UofT’s Munk Center.
I have degrees in civil and common law from McGill University and received my B.A. in International Relations and Archetypal Mythology from the University of Toronto.
I have interned at Human Rights Watch and on Radovan Karadzic and Ieng Thirith's defense teams at the International Criminal Tribunal for the former Yugoslavia and the Extraordinary Chambers in the Courts of Cambodia. I have conducted research for Professors Margaret MacMillan, Payam Akhavan, Frederic Megret, Paul Litt, Sylvia Ostry and Goran Sluiter, among others.
I also collaborate with my mother on mixed media art exhibitions and enjoy amateur photography.
