Freelance Creative & Technical Director, Graphic Designer & Developer.
With over two decades of experience, I have launched more than 100 brands using a wide range of skills including Design, Illustration and Development, Brand and Product Design, Distribution and Marketing to Manufacturing. My understanding of the business to business, and business to consumer markets uniquely positions me to benefit your brand's awareness.
My education from Sheridan College, based on a 3-year Diploma in Illustration, provides my skill in the arts and my continuing education in Business and Marketing at the University of Toronto gives me a firm grasp of business principles and communication. This combination benefits your brand in my being able to correctly plan, produce, and deploy design in any medium that has consistently resulted in great return on investment for my clients. So far in 2018 my clients who reported information to me have had on average, a sales increase of 106% and 81% more sales driven by social media. My personal brand Creatibly has grown 351.91% in the last 5 years which is a direct result of my client's successes with product sales exceeding 11 million units for particular products I have designed, including #1's on Groupon, and Top 5 Sellers on Amazon.
In 2017, I appeared on Season 11 - Episode 12 of The Dragons' Den, where I made deals with four out of five Dragons, including Jim Treliving, Michele Romanow, Joe Mimran and Michael Wekerle. I ended up beginning due diligence with Jim Treliving but upon further review decided to sell the brand outright to a new buyer.
