Early on in my training as a graphic designer, I knew I wanted to focus on designing for film and television productions. I think it was attending lectures lead by Annie Atkins, Erin Sarofsky and Emily Oberman that gave me the film bug, as what they do really inspires me. I’ve had that bug ever since.

After working on screen-based design projects, I realized why I loved the tight timelines and speed that was required, as designing felt like a daily workout as well as a professional career. As a freelance graphic designer since 2012, with a background in fine arts, and experience designing motion graphics, I am capable of taking on many different tasks to help my team finish on time and on budget. I enjoy research and creating things that are important, but only a few people notice.

I’ve travelled and worked around the world, and I am comfortable working in many different environments amongst an incredibly diverse range of people. Recently, I joined the Director’s Guild of Canada, Art Department caucus, and I am excited to work on some fantastic productions in the months and years to come.
