I just want to make things that people like. Things that people can use, things that speak, things that work. Let’s get it done.

I never get tired of learning. I studied History and English Literature and graduated with an Honours joint major. That was fun, but I had bills. So I went to design college. I studied advertising and graphic design and graduated with honours, and now I’m enrolled in grad school at OCAD. To pay for those 8+ years of post-secondary study I was a bartender, and I stay in the business for the fun and because it’s a school for learning about people. Also, you can never know too many cocktail recipes. I stay sharp and on top of design trends by taking workshops and reading up on photography.

For fun I’ve cut my knuckles restoring a couple classic cars, flipped a house, made furniture, blown up radios (long story), pet my cat, took up jogging, tried to recreate the perfect Chicago deep dish, and did the backpacking travel thing.

I’ve been a designer since 2010; designing and photographing for municipalities, museums, restaurants, big businesses, small businesses, tiny businesses, international businesses. And probably some people like you. So drop me a line, and let’s get to work.
