Résumé

Profile

During the last ten years, I’ve been a graphic designer and desktop publisher working in-house for various organizations and companies, running my own freelance business as well as teaching a graphic design and desktop publishing course at Algonquin College.

I can work independently from home, in groups on site, I can lead and I can follow.

Outside of graphic design I’m an amateur stand-up comedian and to compensate for the long hours spent in front of a computer I workout at the gym and take long bike rides.

In life, like design, balance is everything.

Education

I never stop learning because the industry’s tool and techniques never stop evolving.

Algonquin College (1999-2001)

Creative Advertising Program

I earned a two-year diploma program that covered all aspects of modern advertising from concept to execution with a strong desktop publishing and graphic design element.

Visual Arts Program

I was a student in the demanding Visual Arts Program while working on the standard high school curriculum.
