Personal mission statement: Grow and improve myself through meaningful achievements that allow me to solve problems for my customers and my network.

I got into computer graphic design because I enjoy using a combination of technology and emotional design to produce elements for clients that convey the right message to the right audience. The friction that inevitably comes about in the collaborative process, always turns out the most interesting and strong, final products.

Passionate about my field of work and a fast learner, I diligently take on whatever task is required to get the job done, be it static marketing collateral, basic websites, motion graphics design, developing more efficient procedures, coaching team members and managing budgets.

Known for understanding the bigger picture, focusing on results and demonstrating integrity, I honour commitments by collaborating effectively with others so that my team and I consistently deliver on schedule and on budget.

Time at Monster, C4 Communications/OBNL360, Zoom Media and freelancing at home, I have over 20 years of experience designing for clients ranging from big agencies and organizations, to small, local businesses. I enjoy finding creative design solutions to challenges they face and building strong, enduring relationships with them.
