I was born and raised about 25 km outside of Vancouver, Canada.

I have worked in the fields of advertising and magazine publishing, obtained a Bachelors of Technology Degree in Graphic Communications Management from Ryerson University and a Fashion Arts Certificate from Vancouver Community College.

I have a high appreciation for: powder snow conditions, handmade clothes, a fine cobbler.
I have a great fear of: getting lost in a human maze, being struck by lightning, moldy food.

If you have an upcoming project you’d like to collaborate on, please drop me a line!
