A bit about me

A professional designer with over 8 years experience, I enjoy every aspect of being a graphic and web designer. I love what I do and I personally invest myself in every project I work on.

My studio is a creative environment that fuels my passion and enthusiasm. I like to create clean, fresh designs and websites and always put my client first. I use the latest web technologies and services to produce cost-effective solutions.

Background

Ever since I was a kid growing up in Canada, I wanted to be a visual artist. During my high school years, my favorite subject was art and in the final years I enrolled in advanced placement art. At the end of each year, an independent University graded my portfolio and I achieved the highest score of five both years.

I was encouraged not to pursue art beyond high school and instead studied science in University. Unsatisfied with resulting work opportunities, I went back to school in Melbourne, Australia convinced Advanced Diplomas of Arts in Multimedia and Graphic Design were what I needed to reclaim my artistic roots and give my visual art skills a modern, digital edge. In this course I learnt everything digital including photography, video editing, 3D modeling and animation, advertising, packaging design, and design fundamentals including typography, color and design theory.

Now, I’m very happy that I turned my passion into a career and business.
