CV

Hi there! My name is Devin.

I love what I do and I do a lot. I’m a jack-of-all-trades with experience in qualitative research, project management, video production, web development, community engagement and more.

I am currently working as a certified NationBuilder Architect & Expert, developing digital strategies and websites for community engagement. I choose to work with the NationBuilder platform because it is the best community-building toolkit on the market for small to medium sized teams to gather the right data and target the right people. I work with great causes, communities & progressive businesses, most of which focus on issues related to land use and energy development.

After receiving a degree in Anthropology from the University of Victoria, I spent five years working closely with communities affected, both positively and negatively, by industrial development around the world.

I have worked extensively on community consultations, impact assessments, participatory mapping projects and traditional land use studies with Fort McKay First Nation and Metis. As the lead author of a series of community consultation reports for Fort McKay, I have a well-rounded understanding of the impacts and benefits communities in Canada’s oil sands region care most about.

Outside of my work as an anthropologist, I use my skill-sets in web design, data management and analysis, and multimedia creation to help research teams, community organizations, and indigenous communities communicate information more effectively and more beautifully.

As a Master of Landscape Architecture candidate at the University of Toronto, I am extremely excited to start sculpting the land we walk upon. I will take my experiences in community engagement and other design contexts to build a practice that emphasizes respectful collaboration and communication with end users.
