Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada
Hello! I am a communication designer who loves to work with people to create meaningful and functional work, both print and digital. I am passionate about translating stories into visuals through the use of graphics, typography, colour, and layout. Most of all, I enjoy spending time being immersed in all the amazing and meaningful possibilities of design. I have a focus in print & publication design, creative direction, and typography.
