I work as a consultant in the field of corporate social responsibility (CSR). I got my start in CSR through the University of the Arctic PhD certificate program in Extractive Industries. My research for UArctic focused on the ways multinational companies work to gain social license through CSR policies or programs.

After my time with UArctic, I branched out into research and consulting on CSR communications. I created a company called KeynoteCSR for this work. My main interest is the way companies attempt to bridge the gap between their CSR communications and the practices they implement on a day-to-day-basis (i.e. the difference between saying and doing CSR). 

I currently offer research services, consultations, and workshops on CSR communications strategy. My research approach is primarily qualitative and grounded in semiotic, hermeneutic, and phenomenological methodologies. This research may involve start-to-finish projects to develop CSR policies and communications, analysis of current policies and practices, or workshops and consultations to inform an organizational understanding of CSR.
