The Story

I started my career as a freelance artist, then spent five years working for local design firms where I was able to fine tune my skills in illustration, print design, web development and multimedia production.

This experience also gave me the opportunity to create designs for a wide range of clients, from local companies, to government initiatives and large corporations.

With my abilities in traditional art, digital illustration, graphic design, web design, photography and video production, I have now spent several years exercising my skills as a freelance designer and have done work for clients in Canada, the United States, England, and Ireland.

I have also worked in the position of Graphic Design Technologist, and have taught Web Development, illustration and Visual Communications at Canadore College of Applied Arts and Technology.

In recent years, my focus has shifted primarily to photography, and cinematic video production, including lending my skills to a variety of feature films, as well as shooting an athletic series now appearing on TSN.
