 Looking for a great creative?

Curiosity has fueled my creativity for as long as I can remember. I'm fortunate enough to do what I love for a living, and am endlessly driven to learn, grow, and try new things.

I've been working in branding, creative direction, project (and client) management, UX and website design, and art direction and design since 2011. I understand the necessity of inter-department collaboration and teamwork for organizational growth and success.


I've bootstrapped businesses from the ground-up, including organically growing a cross-platform following for my own first co-founded company, Onya Baby, to over 55,000 followers and landing sales and distribution in eight countries. I created - and patented - the Onya Baby products, which has an average of 4.7 stars in multiple, unsolicited user reviews. I created and directed Marcoon, a boutique branding firm, for 6 years. For the past 4 years I've been working with Feris BuildTech, building the brand, developing and building the brand design system and brand architecture, refining the messaging, and doing sales and marketing.

I've worked with organizations like Scouts Canada, Tedx, University of Ottawa, National Healing Forest, Rogers Communications, and countless other businesses on brand identity strategy and development. 


I've mentored with renegade animator Ralph Bakshi and brand master Marty Neumeier, have been hired to create promotion posters for venues and bands like Phish and Blues Traveller. I've been asked to guest and speak on design business podcasts and at marketing and design events.


Good design is food for the soul. Good marketing gets you in the feels.

I continue to learn, grow, and expand. If I don't know how to do it, I put my mind to learning how. That's my jam on toast. Let's do this!
