About the speaker
This month’s speaker is one of Ottawa’s newest transplants who experienced getting away from it all, but just when he thought he was out… they pulled him back in. Code will provide valuable insight into the life of a successful urban professional and highlight the importance of maintaining a work/life balance while also managing a $35-million investment fund!

Last month, 55 CreativeMornings chapters came together for a global conversation around the topic of “Space.” For August, the next global theme was… “Urbanism.” The theme was chosen by our Stockholm organizer Richard Feigin and skilled Stockholm-based illustrator Marcus Gunnar Pettersson created our monthly illustration.
Speakers are delving into all aspects of urbanism and how we interact with our built environment: such as George and Sarah Aye of Greater Good Studio, who use design to solve social problems (Chicago), to Adam Gebrián, well-known “architect who never built anything” (Prague). From collecting a city’s stories to building collaborative ecosystems, talks from this month will make you think hard about the city you inhabit (or in our case, chose to stop inhabiting) and the role you play.
This month is also when we’re thrilled to formally announce a partnership with the City of Ottawa through the signing of an memorandum of understanding (MOU) with the Community Arts and Social Engagement program. This relationship will look to both support and promote the growing creative scene in Ottawa, while recognizing CreativeMornings as a catalyst for creative community building.
