Hello World.

Updated: Feb 8

Welcome, I'm glad you're here! I'm an artist and designer freelancing for businesses across Canada.

A wee bit about my background:

Having lived in Scotland, California, Kuwait, Switzerland, Kazakhstan, Spain, and now Canada, I've been lucky to travel the globe in search of the unique and wonder-filled. These experiences cemented my passion for photography. As I experimented, I formulated a practice with a unique abstract style. This eventually led me to the Emily Carr University of Art and Design, where I graduated with a BDes in Interaction Design in 2016.

Since then, I've worked as a design consultant independently and through Toptal, the online freelance network. You can find out more about my recent projects here.

Though different in focus, my creative work is driven by two core methodologies:

Simplicity in Design

Simplicity in design is more than an aesthetic choice; it's a philosophy that values the essence of functionality. Rooted in the timeless principle that form should follow function, my approach to design strips away the unnecessary to ensure there is no confusion towards services offered and how to convert a sale. Often aesthetics are confused with experience, my perspective is that a seamless experience lays the foundation for purposeful aesthetics.

Digital Cubisim

Popularised by artists like Picasso and Braque, Cubism brings different views of subjects together in a single picture, often creating images that appear fragmented and abstracted. While out and about, I'll use my camera to capture elements of my surroundings, with the intent to create abstract compositions. It's been a passion of mine for the last 15 years and I have recently started to showcase my work to the public. View prints here.
