I’m a freelance designer and advertiser based out of a winterized cottage north of Kingston, Ontario, Canada. Over the last 6 years I’ve been a junior designer, senior designer, production manager, and creative director. I’ve worked in-house in magazine, fitness, and marketing industries. I’m now enjoying the freedom of freelance, working for companies all over the world on a variety of super-fun projects and I’d love to work with your team. In my spare time I like to play around with new marketing technologies (if you visit my site and it’s down it’s because it’s also my guinea pig) I’m also an avid camper and a fitness addict.
