An understanding of web accessibility, knowledge of the Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG) and the Accessibility for Ontarians with Disabilities Act (AODA) informs each project.

I created and maintain the web site for the Toronto Trailblazers. I put together sites for the Ice Owls, and Blind Sailing.
Since 2021 I've been volunteering at the Toronto Public Library with the Leading to Reading program.
From 2005 to 2019 I welcomed guests, brought in donations, and packed lunches for the First Interfaith Out of the Cold, a downtown Toronto homeless shelter.
