Previous Lines of Work:

Then a Graphic Designer for two ad agencies and a B2B company in Toronto...did I forget anything?? Oh yeah, and REM: it's awesome working here!

When my clients tell me how much they love the design I've done for their website.

Mother nature and animals (because I was watching nature documentaries recently). There's some strange, amazing creatures and things on our planet.
