Hi, I’m Erin, and I do a little bit of everything.
I’m a poet living in Vancouver on the unceded territories of the Squamish, Tsleil Waututh and Musqueam First Nations, currently studying in The Writers Studio Program at SFU.
I work in marketing and communications, helping non-profits and arts organisations be awesome on the web through digital storytelling, design, social media and strong customer service. I believe that arts and communication have the power to connect people and build community.
I am a member of the Vancouver Experimental Theremin Orchestra. I built my instrument from scratch and can safely say this is one of the coolest things I’ve ever done.
I’m fascinated by the maker movement, and in the potential of mending and repair to be both a creative and political act.
I also have formal training as a gemmologist and appraiser, though that doesn’t stop me from indulging in a love of vintage plastic.
Want to work together? I’d love to hear from you.
