As a student in the 70s, I had an innate feeling for the arts and humanities, and a dim sense of their importance and relevance. University was not a good fit for me, and I
studied anthroposophy and eurythmy instead. This led me to a deeper understanding of the value of the arts, and gave me an edge – a unique selling proposition – in my subsequent career in business communications.
40+ years later, I have come to understand that business, science and technology – left to their own devices – cannot produce a culture worthy of human beings. Through the arts and humanities, we learn how to ensure that our enterprises meet and satisfy real human needs.
With this perspective, I am now involved in a number of community projects in the Toronto area. The underlying theme of my work is liminality – MEETING people who are different, and learning and growing together.
