The Food Library is an interactive exhibit spread across three rooms, immersing participants in a future world where food security and climate change are addressed by a new urban form: the edible city. Participants engage with elements of this speculative future, exploring audio, visual, and physical prototypes. It was cocreated by Gregory Cotton and Hershel Nashman.


To improve their digital delivery, the Ontario Autism Program wanted to create a secure web portal for families. I worked in the discovery and alpha phases as one of two product designers, alongside two developers and a lab leader, to create a proof of concept and to prototype some potential features.


I worked as a Product Designer with the Ontario Digital Service to help lay the groundwork for a new single sign-on (SSO) for the province's digital services. We worked alongside 13 different program areas and the Public Secure team before handing our work off to a vendor.
