I am the Local Lead for Sofar Sounds Ottawa, a concert series allowing fans and artists to connect through live music in unique, intimate locations. We launched the Ottawa chapter in April 2022, and now host four shows a month in unique venues all across the city. Sofar Ottawa highlights the musical talents from the Nation's capital, and often welcomes touring acts as well as performers from Toronto and Montreal.

In the past I was also the Programs Manager at the Ottawa Music Industry Coalition, where I oversaw and developed professional development programs and live music events such as the Independent Music Business series and City Sounds (formerly known as Love Local Stage). From 2020-22, I was a program coordinator at L’Association professionnel de la chanson et la musique the national support organisation for Francophone musicians and music industry workers outside of Quebec. During my time at APCM, I ran the Rond Point residency for emerging Francophone artists and the Pro Fusion virtual residency for mid-career artists.

I am currently the director of Polski Piknik Montreal, Quebec’s largest festival of Polish culture. We offer a one-day festival as well as year-round programming, welcoming acts from Quebec and from across the diaspora.
