Thanks for taking the time to visit my web site. I am a graphic designer living in sunny Tsawwasen, BC.
I hope you can tell from my portfolio that I love designing. I mean I LOVE designing. I've been passionate about it since I was 12 years old and I created my first newsletter by cutting and pasting hand written articles together, photocopying the master copy and distributing them around my neighborhood. A couple of years later in 1986, I had access to my first computer and my first illustration program and I was hooked for life.
It's so exciting to see an idea come to life. Creating unique, clean, usable designs for print, web and other media. I love the entire process including meeting with a client, brainstorming, conceptualizing, layout, photography, illustration, and production. I love being curious and asking questions and constantly trying to make things better. I believe boundaries are a starting point and nothing is impossible... with enough coffee.
When I'm not busy meeting with clients, designing or programming you'll probably find me spending time with my family, eating sushi, reading, napping, cooking, playing in my craft room, challenging someone to an old fashioned game of scrabble (the face to face kind where you can use a dictionary to cheat and invent your own words!), going for long walks with Bailey (my Yorkie) and/or drinking coffee (I'm hopelessly addicted!).
I believe if your dream job doesn't exist - you must create it and this is exactly what I did in 1997 when I quit my job at MDS Metro Labs (now LifeLabs) and started my own home based business as a graphic designer.
I get to be home with my kids, my commute is less than 3 minutes, I work with some of the most fabulous people you'll ever meet and I spend my days designing, problem solving and creating beautiful things - seriously what more can I ask for? Except maybe more coffee!
Anyway that's enough about me....tell me about you and your business. How can I help you succeed?
