Resumé

Skills

I am a graphic designer based in Ottawa, Canada who is passionate about communication tools, photography, good food, family and my favourite furr-ball Gordie. With a Bachelor of Fine Art, specializing in Photographic Arts, from the Alberta College of Art & Design in Calgary, Alberta, I continue to use strong photographic elements within all of my design projects. I have spent over 24 years gaining valuable experience in print media, branding, photography, blogging and web design. Always learning and open to new experiences, I look forward to what enfolds next, both professionally and personally.
