I am a classically trained commercial artist (DiVA, BFA) with over 20 years of design experience.
… an enthusiastic visual storyteller.
I am constantly acquiring creative skills; equipping me to produce practically anything independently… pixel to print.
… a lifelong learner.
Approaching 10 years of combined post-secondary education and mentorship experience.
… perpetually inspiring.
I am compelled to make art … virtual, physical, and experiential.
… driven to create.
I am a total petrolhead… classic car hobbyist, epic road enthusiast, formula one super-fan, constant home renovator, plus a science and technology geek.
… enchanted by beauty in design.

How well is more important than how much.
Authentic storytelling is key to connecting with anyone in a meaningful way.
‘People may not remember what you said … but they will remember how you made them feel.’
If you work smart … nothing is impossible.
I believe in *a scalpel … not a hammer.
