I'm a Toronto-based designer with a broad background in all elements of marketing from traditional advertising to interactive and user experience. Design is my passion, in my mind, it is important to have a good sense of vision in design. We are always confined by the rules and guidelines. It is an art to think outside the box and be creative within the corporate framework. Because the rules change constantly, we just need to trust and stick with our own instinct and vision.
I have a wide spectrum of interest and passion when it comes to art. From traditional fine art to digital art, I continually explore new mediums and avenues of artistic expression. Please feel free to check out my fine art gallery. I hope you fall in love with it. Thanks for visiting :)
