Born and raised in Nova Scotia, I am proud of my roots that taught me to appreciate community and tight friendships.
Design school in Halifax reinforced this appreciation, but also sparked my desire to explore more of the world. I left home to embark on a wonderful journey to establish myself as a graphic designer and art director in London, England.
While acquiring skills in some of the most competitive markets in the world, I didn’t realize at the time, that I was also learning a great deal about many of the things I feel are important in life. I really started to grow into the person I was supposed to be.
After 20 years in the design business, there isn’t much I haven’t explored from music and film, magazine production, event design, branding, and much more.
But my favourite jobs have always been working with organizations that help others. I thrive on hearing stories, getting to know personalities and finding creative ways to get a message out. Joining Good Works I get to do this every day and this brings me a tremendous joy that reminds me of the community and friendships I grew up with.
