About

I was first introduced to the world of graphic design my senior year of high school. I enrolled in a graphic design class, having previously taken a drafting class, and simultaneously started a co-op education program that placed me in a design studio.

Since 2002 I've worked in design studios, in-house, and freelance for clients in tourism, government, natural resources, beverages, education, sports, and entertainment. I have a strong traditional design background and have continued to advance my knowledge and skills in digital media from; UI, advertising, front-end coding, and social media engagement.
