Fuse Staff

Nicole Borland, Executive Director

Nicki has been working with LondonFuse for 5 years now. It all started with the very first call for interns in January of 2012, when she promptly applied and, “to her utter glee,” was accepted.

She has been a contributor ever since and credits much of her development as a writer to work done at Fuse. During this time, Nicki served on the Fuse Board of Directors, was afforded numerous volunteer and professional opportunities, and completed a master’s thesis based on work done with this organization.

All of these experiences culminated in a fateful day in May of 2016 when she took on the role of Program Director, and changed once more in August of 2017, when she accepted the position of Executive Director. Now, Nicki feels so lucky to work with amazing colleagues, contributors, and board members while promoting the London arts and culture community everyday.

Her hope for London:

That one day every vacant, beautiful, historically significant building downtown are occupied by more than a the white light of a nameplate. London is filled with so many dedicated, creative people and with more spaces for them to flourish in, our city will get better, one repurposed structure at a time.”

When Gerard started at LondonFuse in July of 2016, he was part of the transition team working on the new and improved londonfuse.ca.

A year later, he switched seats into that of the Program Director.

To say he has an intimate knowledge of LondonFuse is an understatement. A large part of his job was reading, reviewing and editing seven years of material during the changeover.

He is also a large part of Short Fuse – doing the layout and graphic design for the publication, and just generally pitching in with writing for print and web and making ridiculous photoshop collages.

Gerard brings with him a decade of experience  in the newspaper industry and a passion for writing that he loves to share with contributors and LondonFuse visitors alike.
