After a fateful photoshop and dreamweaver workshop in university, I fell in love with design and never looked back. I've been working professionally in interactive and print since 2005 and left the full-time world almost three years ago to become a freelancer.

I now officially call my Macbook Air home and love nothing more than to spend the day cozied up with tea, Netflix and a juicy project.

Born and raised in Toronto, Canada – I am Canadian at heart, but a traveller by blood and love to puruse new projects in different countries.
