Who I Am

(Hover/Tap for Hipster Version)

I have been working as a professional since 2002. In that time I have continued to add new skills to better serve my clients and employers. I have served many years as an in-house designer for several Ottawa start-ups. Within these organizations I was almost always working with several departments handling many projects in various stages. In a typical day I will do some documentation for Finance, brochures for Sales, launch a landing page, and wireframe a workflow for a new software feature.

I work well serving many different groups within a large organization and I can manage a large variety of jobs efficiently with clear communication of priority and timing. I work very well under pressure, I am quickly able to assess and offer multiple solutions and then weigh the risks and benefits with my superiors to find the optimal outcome. I never back down from a challenge and I am not satisfied until every detail meets our standards.

I’m passionate about what I do

I love to learn

New skills and new challenges are what keep me going.

I love new ideas

Breathing life into thoughts and feelings is the best feeling!

I love the work

Design is a process as much as it is a creative discipline

I love to teach

Sharing knowledge and experience is my greatest achievement
