About

Beginning in 2002, I spent five years working as a graphic designer and signmaker before taking a time-out to start a family in 2007. I picked up my first digital SLR camera in October 2008, just before the birth of our second child. With the inspiration of my family and the beauty of my adopted home in Ireland, I found a love for photography. After traveling around Europe and also living in England, I returned home to BC in 2014.

 

I’ve worked with clients from small business to large enterprise producing brands, identities, projects and campaigns across most forms of digital and print media. I’ve assessed needs and wishes, advised on style options, and developed multiple iterations of designs; created identities, logos, business cards, flyers, brochures and websites; photographed, designed and produced product catalogs, posters and display ads; designed signage and ran large format solvent printers, plotters and inkjets; and prepared and applied vinyl sign graphics to various substrates.

 

I’m basically a Swiss Army Knife for all your design and production needs.
