The OCAD U Creative Professionals-In-Residence program is back once again! This mentorship initiative is created to support the career success of current OCAD U students and recent alumni.

Join us for a meet and greet with Sonia to learn more about her practice and ways she can offer feedback and career development support this semester.

Since graduating from OCAD University in 2019, she has worked primarily in the TV industry on shows such as Bubble Guppies, Clone High Season 2, The Casagrandes, Inside Job, and others. She is currently working at Brown Bag Films in Toronto. Sonia also maintains a personal art practice in which she creates and directs independent animations, music videos, experimental mixed media video art, and digital/mixed media paintings.


About the program:

The program invites professional guests from a variety of different art and design related disciplines to join us at the CEAD on a regularly scheduled basis for the course of the academic semester. We invite students to book a casual chat session with our residents to talk about their projects, goals and questions.  

Sonia’s weekly office hours will be announced shortly after the meet & greet session after which you will have the opportunity to book an appointment with her during the semester. Stay tuned for more info!
