Coffee Chats w/ Nick Alexander

Coffee Chats is a series of virtual casual gatherings with the CEAD team with industry guests. Hosted virtually in small intimate groups, these gatherings will provide a space for group conversations with practitioners who are interested in supporting OCAD U students and grads to offer mentorship, and share their professional insights and journey, while collectively creating an online community.

Currently Nick is a Design Team Lead at ASTOUND and is the recipient of a public art grant from Kolab Project.
