Profile

With over 13 years of experience as a Graphic and Web Designer, my background includes working in creative agencies in Ontario and Alberta, in-house corporate design, and freelancing.

Experience

After graduating from Graphic Design in 2005, I landed my first graphic design gig as a production artist in London, Ontario. In that position I was able to learn the detail work of repairing film on drafting boards, prepping art for dies, and even designing the roll-up-the-rim to win for Timmy’s! Although I enjoyed the hands-on approach to design work, I decided to return to college for another year to further my web and video skills. The additional diploma in Multi-Media Design & Production led me to attain an incredibly versatile position in Sarnia, Ontario at a media agency. In that role I worked on everything from logo design, print design, and web design to animation, 3D modelling and special effects and editing for video.

When I moved to Alberta in 2008 I worked in another media agency and was able to continue using my expanded skill set. Once I returned to Sarnia I decided to focus on website design and attained a position as a Website Designer for an educational institution. During my current role, I have not only designed a 4000 page responsive website from the ground-up as the sole web designer, but have also learned many communication, analytical, technical, data analysis and leadership skills.

I’ve been in the industry for well over a decade and I still love to learn and am passionate about design. I love the endless opportunities for creativity and problem solving!
