About Me

Having lived in Toronto for 5 years and now Guelph for more than 10 years, I’ve had the opportunity to be surrounded by talented people making great things - anything from music, art and architecture to craft beer - my community is inspiring and keeps my creativity flowing. I’m also obsessed with branding, logos and signage. As far back as I can remember I’ve had a passion for creating logos, anything from contests, team t-shirts to bands, or even fictional companies. I love the extensive thought process and rationale that go into such a simple image.
