Based out of OCAD University in Toronto; I was trained in both traditional and digital forms of Illustration, with a clean yet graphically detailed aesthetic to my works. With previous work experiences ranging from graphic design, print operation, and administrative work - I have since been focusing my efforts in pursuing a career in Art Direction; geared towards the advertising space. In addition to my keen eye for design and fashion, I am always pursuing new challenges with a “Keep-Pushing-Forward” mindset in order to bring innovative solutions that are not only relevant creatively, but also strategically aligned to specific goals.

Outside of my work - when I’m not pixel peeping - I’m a self-proclaimed ‘star-hunter’ of sorts with a great deal of interest in astrology, and the sci-fi genre - all the while caring for my small, but luscious collection of plants. 

That said, I’m really a dork at heart so don’t let my fresh pair of sneakers fool you!

Please feel free to contact me as I would love to touch base on how I can collaborate with you.
