Work     Personal     Info



I’ve been working in art and design for 12+ years via agencies, in-house brand departments, art galleries, and movie sets. My background is in Art History and design research and I am currently Design Lead on the wonderful team at Monday Creative. My passion is always to collaborate, push ideas, support a team, and find sustainable and equitable solutions for the work. Vancouver was my home for many years until I recently moved to Edmonton, AB, with my two-year-old son and my partner. I now work between both cities. (I miss the cherry blossoms.) When I’m not working on design, I’m painting, playing with my wild son, or gardening.
