designer  .  illustrator  .  artist



what do you want to be when you grow up? 

When I was asked this question, my only answer ever has been to be an artist. Well... except for a short period of time around the fourth grade when I wanted to be a cat. I was the kid who organized 100 packs of crayons into rainbow order and drew chalk portraits of garden flowers on the sidewalk. All my life I have loved to create.

I love working with my hands and the rush of finally completing a project that has taken a week of sleepless nights and countless chai tea lattes to get just right. I am a driven perfectionist, who craves order but loves the passion and chaos of creating something new. In 2016 I graduated summa cum laude from the York University / Sheridan College Bachelor of Design honours program, in the four most hectic, yet rewarding years of my life.
