Working with an old colleague

About me

I have worked in design and development for more than 15 years and I have worked across a variety of media's including online, multimedia, print and broadcast. Performing an equally diverse set of tasks such as Creative Director, Art Director, Producer, Designer, Artist, Photographer. I am always searching for the next challenge, if you have something in mind send me an email. If you're looking for my resume here's the PDF.


Accessibility, design, web standards etc. Since 1999 I have been working with Community Living Toronto to create ConnectABILITY, a website in support of people with an intellectual disability.

Typography has been a love of mine for quite some time. I started my design career off at a studio doing photostats of letraset catalogues, then cutting up the type and hand setting headlines for comps. I have been on the board with the Type Club of Toronto for the past 6 years.
