ABOUT ME

As a designer, I specialize in composing the voice of a brand. This involves me in visuals, marketing and brand development, which I have executed on a local, national and international level.

As an educator, I bring my passion of design and my love of things pedagogic into the classroom: whether I am working with post-secondary students, or the teachers themselves.

To find out the full story, with all the fancy name-dropping, you can check out my bio here.

Design differentiates one message from another, shapes consumer perceptions, influences knowledge and defines our visual landscape.

It is too important to leave in the hands of just anyone.

Direction of
content, brand,
and design
comes from
thinking creatively.

Leading and teaching
are both the sharing
of passion, and the
collaboration of knowledge
and experience from
one person to another.

TAKE A
MOMENT TO
NOTICE THE DESIGN
THAT IS ALL AROUND YOU.

I have muted my voice to allow the space for other voices in your feed. I have been thinking this week about how to rejoin this social community - do I raise my voice as a white-privileged mixed race person? do I share the changes I am bringing about as the director of a college program? in the end, no - my feelings of anger and shame and sadness are only internally important. instead I will use what influence I have to enact the change that I believe in. broaden your spectrum.
