Design should be useful, engaging and beautiful — and at times, experimental. In a world of dynamic and disruptive change, designers need to execute quickly with careful analysis and thorough testing. 

I’m a design leader who specializes in visual brand strategy, digital product design, creative direction, photography and illustration. During my tenure as Design Director for The Globe and Mail, I have been recognized with awards for art direction, design and visual storytelling from renowned organizations such as The Advertising and Design Club of Canada, The Association of Registered Graphic Designers, The Society for News Design and Applied Arts magazine. In 2016, The Globe and Mail was nominated for World’s Best Design by SND.

Over a 15-year career, I’ve led major projects, redesigns and marketing campaigns for  Texas Instruments, The Globe and Mail, Canada’s Walk of Fame, American Express, Nissan, Hyundai, Rolex, The Independent Film Channel, the Toronto Star, The Canadian Jewish News, Metroland Media Group and Alliance Atlantis Films. 

I'm a proud contributor to The Trust Project and member of the Program Advisory Board for the Toronto Film School.
