  • User Interface
Since studying at NAIT and MacEwan University, I have established myself as a budding graphic designer from Alberta with a strong passion for print, publication, branding and web design.

Lately, I have been specializing in creating content for small businesses, non-profit organizations, and faculties of education. I prioritize taking a sustainable approach with my designs to create energy and time-efficient user experiences.

When not at work, I enjoy consuming art in all its forms—from literature to music, film, games, illustration, and more. My mantra is, “if I’m not learning, working, or creating, I’m not at my fullest potential.”
Nestwell Catalogue Publication Design
This project involved the design of a multiple-page product catalogue that contains different hierarchies of rich information content interacting with images and graphics. A catalogue for the linen and bath collection Nestwell™ was created with the intention of unifying the existing brand with the professional layout of a catalogue. An emphasis was placed on everyday comfort, organic materials, and affordability.
Peter & Wendy Publication Design
This version of Peter and Wendy incorporates illustrations with both a sketched and lino cut quality to compliment the elegant typesetting. The book’s illustrations and typography blend well to pull in a modern audience, but still pay homage to the original, classic publication. The intention was to create illustrations that could have been scrawled by the main character, Wendy, as she recalls her adventures with Peter and the Lost Boys in Neverland.
Groundhog Day Metaphorical Timelines Poster
The main objective of this project was to create a poster displaying data relating to the looping and non-linear timeline of the 1993 film Groundhog Day. The film was broken down into several sets of data, including time, symbols and events, characters and song lyrics. Different forms of dynamic visual diagrams were reviewed and collected for inspiration, in order to create a complex, yet synthesized, visual diagram of the film.
Citadel Theatre Wayfinding
The main objective of this project was to incorporate the Citadel Theatre’s existing identity into a new wayfinding system for individuals to navigate through the building. Between myself and a fellow BDes graduate, Erin Hudson, a lighted delineator was developed that would be installed within the building to help point users in the right direction.
