I intimately understand the design process. I have been afforded the opportunity to be involved in that creative process for over 30 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.
I am currently Senior Creative at Outcrop Communications. I get to work with a team of very talented individuals who work across the arctic. The Yukon, Northwest Territories and Nunavut. Outcrop is the oldest agency in the north – 50 years young. I continue to work with many Indigenous and non-Indigenous organizations helping Indigenous communities. I’ve helped design websites for The Grizzlies, the movie, BC Museums Association‘s Indigenous Resources subdomain and Indian Horse, the film. I’ve also created branding and visual identities for Cohen Quash aka Mesdizih Eskiye (Owl Boy), Turtle Island Institute, EntrepreNorth and many others. Other long-standing clients include Shot in the Dark Productions, Bean North, Gunta Business, Kwanlin Dün First Nation, Ta’an Kwäch’än Council, Kwanlin Dün Cultural Centre, and the Yukon Child and Youth Advocate Office.
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.
