I am a Graphic, Web and User Interface Designer, born and raised in Amherstburg, Ontario. I very much enjoy my career, as it allows me to use my creative abilities to their full potential. I believe in clean, elegant design, and that, while efficiency is important, the quickest way to get a job done is not always the best way. I'm also a beard consultant, an amateur musician, an amateur photographer, and a bicycle fanatic.
My day to day tasks at City Cyclery include but are no limited to: implementing and running their website (which I also designed), managing e-commerce, creating and implementing all marketing campaigns, running their social media channels, managing the store front, making bicycle and accessory sales, as well as performing minor bicycle repairs.
In addition to designing, building and maintaining the Woodcock Cycle Works web presence, I also manage their e-commerce store, social media channels, and take care of shipping, receiving and other managerial tasks.
At ClarkHuot my time was spent creating brands and logos, designing and implementing mobile friendly web experiences, and consulting the rest of the creative team on responsive web design.
As a member of the creative team at Wired Solutions, I put my creative skills and HTML/CSS knowledge to work everyday. I designed and implemented XML compliant websites, and style web applications.
As founder of NERV, I worked on all aspects of a project, including submitting job proposals to prospective clients, creating and delivering job quotes, and working with clients to ensure that they got the best possible product. My clients included people in the financial sector, software developers, natural health care providers and local bands.
As a graphic designer for Douglas Marketing Group, I created websites, brochures, posters, logos, and business card designs for a wide variety of clients, ranging from financial institutions and corporations to high end jewellers and bed and breakfasts. It is at this firm that I learned my client communication skills, and further honed my skills in Photoshop and Illustrator.
Gnarwail is an independent cycling blog with a focus on local and Canadian cycling. It's currently in its infancy but plans are already under way to sponsor a small but tenacious racing team for the 2015 season.
Ramble Cycles is a side project between myself and one of my cycling friends. We build high-end custom wheels for anyone that's interested in fast, light and durable wheels.
I enjoy recording electric guitar, bass, and percussion instruments with friends using my home recording set up.
