I like big type
and I cannot lie.

about me.

A creative who loves to produce simple yet engaging things.

I’m an integrated creative with a background in graphic design, art direction and design management.

A travel loving Canadian that’s made home in a few countries (along with visiting 30+ on the way). I’ve found myself working in Canada, London and Australia, creating work for global clients like KeepCup, Hisense Electronics, Target and STA Travel. I’m passionate about bringing brands to life by creating strategic and compelling brand visuals that tell a story. Whether it’s by art direction or design myself, I love to be part of the full strategic design process.
