Nouveau North


We’re here to rekindle the Canadian spirit at home and introduce its value to our friends abroad. We believe in our identity and the Canadian ways of thinking, living, and doing. Let’s explore what it means to be Canadian today. Let’s create a new north.

 
 

Long reads, photographic journeys and our contributions to the discourse; nation-wide adventures of people, place, identity, business and culture.

Like many Canadians, I have grown up to appreciate two cultures. Learning and embracing their respective values, I have finally framed for me what it means to be Canadian. Like historians on the Silk Road, I romanticize the Maritimes for having captured the Canadian spirit. I see Nouveau North as a vehicle to drive us to a place of discovery and appreciation for who we truly are.

I am a design strategist and business designer.

Believe it or not, I spend a lot of time defending Canada to Canadians! Having traveled, lived and worked in over 40 countries I have learnt a thing or two about what the world thinks of us and our country. I feel Canadians are at a crossroad today. We are building Nouveau North to help communicate that we really do have a good thing going here.

I am a writer, strategist and facilitator.
