My early adoption of digital media has allowed me to bridge the gaps between graphic design, illustration, copywriting, and motion graphics. Deploying each medium to tell stories that sell brands has been my main focus. I transitioned from Junior Designer at Citrus Media to Creative Director at Magnetic over five years during my early career. In a short amount of time, I went from managing small projects to managing a multi-talented team of up to fifty designers and developers by building cross-functional relationships in fast-paced environments.

WHERE DO I FIT?

Ego-free designer, illustrator, developer, copywriter, and problem solver.

"With so much experience, why aren't you a full-time Creative or Technical Director managing a team?"

The answer is simple: although I do enjoy management, I'm a creative artist and technical problem solver at the core of my being. I like getting my hands on the problem instead of only giving marching orders. I like finding the fault in the code, that pesky RGB image that somehow got into the production files, writing copy to fit the design, and building the systems and processes that ensure issues are resolved.

EDUCATION

As an ever-curious learner, I bring a wide range of skills to tackle every project.

My education started to take shape in High School when two of my teachers found a strong interest in art and animation, entering me into regional, provincial, and national animation competitions. I was absolutely gifted with amazing teachers throughout my scholastic upbringing, and I owe my career to the teachers from Primary school to University who helped identify and grow my skills as an artist and keep me curious about technology.
