In 2007 I co-founded Structured Abstraction, a Calgary-based web design company creating online tools for social innovators. We created websites, databases, apps, and other technical solutions for clients we were passionate about. Each site was a thoughtfully designed online tool with rich functionality and finely crafted detail. We’d personally invest in each and every partner as well. Artists, innovators, and nonprofits who have great messages to deliver were our inspiration.
In 2013 I co-founded YYC Net Lab, a non-profit dedicated to delivering accessible computer-networking training.
Currently I’m co-founding PlayIRL and Prosocial Combinator.
PlayIRL.org (Play In Real Life) is a prosocial reality-game. Play IRL creates and promotes the gamification of real life activities that generate positive social impact.
Prosocial Combinator is a work in progress. The vision for Prosocial Combinator is to create a for-profit startup incubator coupled to not-for-profit organization dedicated to nurturing profound and ethical livelihoods. Both organizations will have their ownership rooted in an open network of partners who come together under a collective impact constellation network. This is an ongoing personal project open to revision and collaboration.
