So, you want to know what makes me tick?

 First let me address my log line, “thinking inside the box”.  When you first read the words you may quickly come to the conclusion, what a lame-o.  Who would ever employ a designer who is constrained by closed minded thinking?  But let me pose this question to you.  Have you ever watched kids play in a large box that once contained, for example a dishwasher?  You will quickly learn that the box they are playing in is not a box at all.  The discovery that is made is that the box transforms into a space ship or a race car or a castle, a pirate ship or even a cave filled with untold treasure.  Sometimes some of the most creative and inspired ideas come from inside a box.

I was born and raised in a small town in Saskatchewan in an era when facetime was actually meeting face to face, tweeting was talking thru tin cans connected by a string and linking in was seeing friends playing outside and joining the game … ahhhh days of yore. 

I am interested in history, specifically by the history of individuals.  Recently I learned that the hospital I was born in was being demolished to make way for a new health care facility.  A sad day.  However, I was presented with 2 bricks, one from an interior wall and the other from an exterior wall.  Pretty cool to have a piece of my own history. In my spare time, I enjoy turning pens on a lathe, painting, acting, gardening and bird watching.  I have especially enjoyed my morning visits on my patio from Buzz the hummingbird.  I have a great sense of humour — so says I — and am currently developing my own comic strip entitled, Sam & Ella, like I said, I think I am funny.

I have been involved in the print and design industry for over fifteen years.  I have worked as a Graphic Designer,  a Large Format Print Media Specialist as well as Print Sales.  I believe that having a background in these areas gives me a unique perspective into the industry.  My experiences allow me to develop a project from inception through concept, collaboration and finally to final output whether that be a digital or printed product.
