Daphne has been privileged to work alongside visionaries, emerging creatives, independent talents and industry powerhouses from the worlds of fashion and art in a 15-year communications career that has seen her act as interpreter, facilitator, mediator, conspirator and interlocutor on an international stage, most notably spent at renowned international fashion house Comme des Garçons and retailer Dover Street Market.

Raised in Toronto and Hong Kong and educated in Los Angeles and New York, she considers the empathy, curiosity and intersectional identity garnered through this multicultural upbringing core to her work, the foundation of which has always been people - in service of them, and giving shape to their creative ideals through language, collaboration, purpose and action.

She possesses a respect and passion for food as an elemental tool for connection and healing. Uniting those values with a belief that community is the most primary force for change, she advocates on behalf of the underserved and often unseen, for whom a fresh and nutritious diet is a fundamental human right.
