I intimately understand the design process. I have been afforded the opportunity to be involved in that creative process for over 20 years. As a passionate graphic designer who embraces my creative instincts and intuition, I have a burning desire to cultivate flawless outcomes in branding, photography, and web design. The process of the idea, from its first beginnings, to its concrete creation and conclusion, excites and inspires me. This affords me the capability to walk alongside my client in understanding what they wish to convey. I then ensure that their message is visually created with a most powerful and pleasing end product.
My design work for Yukon Tourism has been significant. I have contributed an abundance of the design work for their website as well as for their print advertising and digital pieces. This work has been completed for many of their long term campaigns such as the Come to My Yukon, Explore Yukon and Destination Yukon. Other long-standing clients include Nahanni River Adventures, Bean North, Chukka Caribbean, Kwanlin Dün First Nations, Ta’an Kwäch’än Council, Kwanlin Dün Cultural Centre, Sport Yukon and Yukon Wild.
I am both a team player and an independent, self-motivated worker. I am a quick learner, enthusiastic, focused, reliable, organized and responsible. I have strong communication and interpersonal skills, is friendly and is always open-minded.
I have worked with several agencies, in Ottawa, Toronto, Burlington and most recently in Whitehorse, Yukon. I have worked with Fortune 500 companies like Royal Bank, Xerox, Bell Mobility, Apotex Pharmaceuticals, Canadian Health & Lifestyle Magazine and most recently with Yukon Energy, Yukon Tourism, Yukon Wild and the Kwanlin Dün Cultural Centre. In addition to my private and public sector design experience, I am one of the few designers with deep roots and deep experience designing for Canada’s First Nations Communities. I have worked closely with the Chiefs of Ontario, the Assembly of First Nations, the Blue Feather Music Festival, the Champagne and Aishihik First Nations and the Ta’an Kwäch’än Council.
