Creative + Code
Design + Develop

Bio

I’m a Canadian freelance designer and developer living in historic Lunenburg, Nova Scotia. Passionate about design for both print and screen, as well as programming for web and apps, I work on a diverse range of projects to help brands excel beyond these mediums. I have been fortunate to work on a mix of local and global brands during my career, including Acadia University, Ironworks Distillery, Bell, McDonald’s, Boxing Rock Brewing Co., Ascenta Health, Memorial University, and Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation.

I graduated with an Honours degree in Visual Communication from the Nova Scotia College of Art & Design, and completed two years of Computer Science at Memorial University. After starting my career at Extreme Communications, I went on to London, England to work at Paul Cooper Design, and eventually ended up back in Nova Scotia at the award-winning design agency Breakhouse. I have now been running my own freelance practice for over 10 years.

I balance my digital life with personal creative work in the form of screenprinting. Creating prints by hand, one colour at a time, forces me to slow down, get my hands dirty, and think in different ways.

I’m always looking to collaborate on interesting projects with awesome people – get in touch.
