About

Design has been a constant in my life. As soon as I could grip a crayon, I was drawing and designing. From cross sections to secret bases to logos for video games I wished existed, I was constantly designing. What began there has never stopped.

I was born, raised and live in Metro Vancouver, British Columbia. Nestled between mountains and ocean the area informs my work, and is a constant inspiration with innumerable ways to recharge in nature or find some inspiring culture in the cities.

My career has brought me a wide variety of design-based roles and projects. I have had the privilege of designing identities for sole proprietors and large format graphics for large corporations. There’s been the occasional accolade and news story along the way, I should add those here one day.

Following in the footsteps of the inspirational instructors I had in the past, I’ve made time teach design to college students and even teach design principles to youth at a local arts centre.

Collaboration is important to me, working with other experts to join forces and create something awesome is a good way to live. I don’t have time for pessimists, gossips and trash talk. I want to bring a little joy into the world.

I use ‘a little’ a little too much.
