Do the work that feeds your soul, not your ego

Like many designers of my era, my love for design sparked when I found a “free” version of Photoshop to download; and I’ve been hooked ever since.

Through the years I’ve had the pleasure of learning from various companies I’ve worked with:

  • Starting off as a freelancer I worked with different brands and individuals that helped me gain the always-be-learning and hustle mentality.
  • An in-house designer of a fitness company where I learned everything about paper, ink, print-media, and finding new ways to come up with concepts for the same promo every month.
  • I dabbled in web design for a good 3 years, where I learned the wonders of HTML, CSS, and even JavaScript to build landing pages along with digital ads for hundreds of different brands.
  • In my current role, I’m a creative and design strategist for an online advertising agency; where I get to work with brands from various industries across North America. (You may even have thumb-stopped on a couple of ads I had the pleasure of creating). I work closely with online ad specialists to effectively connect brands with their customers through data-informed creative concepts. I get excited by the idea of connecting the dots from strategy to concepting to execution.

When I’m not designing, I spend much of my free time a) catching up on the latest Netflix show/movie b) eating carbs or c) exercising to offset a and b. If you want to give me something else to do, feel free to get in touch. I’d love to be a part of your next project.
