A little about me...
I’m an experienced creative director, specializing in photography, video, graphic design, & marketing. I graduated from the University of Windsor in 2011 with a B.A.H in Communication, Media and Film Studies but started my career early in 2007 when I founded my own production company and began helping local bands, artists, & small businesses with their digital media needs. With well over 7 years of experience in the creative design field >> from traditional media agencies, to web startups and online/offline publishing, I have a solid foundation of knowledge that helps me execute successful concepts and design for international level clientele. I consistently surround myself with creative people of all types, as a result I have worked in many different aspects of the creative industry.
"You can design and create, and build the most wonderful place in the world. But it takes people to make the dream a reality."Walt Disney
"Good design is making something intelligible and memorable. Great design is making something memorable and meaningful."Dieter Rams
"Design trends online change more often than the wind, and slightly less often than my socks."Suleiman Leadbitter
"Don't design for everyone. It's impossible. All you end up doing is designing something that makes everyone unhappy."Leisa Reichelt
My work says a lot about my passion for the arts and media.

Some wonderful folks I've worked with
I provide a multitude of services.
I believe that a photograph is interesting when instead of increasing our knowledge of the world, it succeeds to alter our respective perceptions of it. The smaller the difference made, the more intense the effect. I offer photography services that include Event, Wedding, Fashion, Engagement, and Promotional Photography.
Graphic design is an extremely important aspect of every growing company. Whether it be updating your social media presence with the most suitable graphics, or simply designing an eye-catching logo, I've got you covered.
I have gained quite a bit of experience working with the Adobe Suite. After Effects has become somewhat of a past-time activity for me. I have created several animated ads, resumes, and promotional logo bumpers for some of Windsor's most well known brands like RMG, The Boom Boom Room, Revival Social Lounge, T2B, and more.
Every company in the world needs a website that properly represents it. Whether you are looking for a simple & clean site, or something with a little more animation and mobile integration, we can get you set up right away! Our clients include Cabello Hair, BeWell Windsor, IRIS House, Trainify, and more.
SOCIAL MEDIA BRANDING
The world we live in today is defined, set, and directed by Social Media. Having a strong understanding of how all of the above services come together to help a company's online presence grow is key.
