The bit about me.
I love to create things. Whether designing installation art, coaxing clay into functional pottery or shooting street life in Florence, I bring unwavering commitment to doing the very best I can. I never stop learning, I never stop growing, I never stop trying – I just never stop.
I’m one of those lucky folks who loves their job. My images have appeared in various publications, including National Geographic magazine. They are also featured in a permanent art installation in Toronto’s PATH system. My graphical and conceptual skills help build brands, launch products and raise understanding and awareness of important issues in our world – the world I love to experience and spend every moment I can exploring. And that’s just the day job.
Things I enjoy and do regularly:
- Photography (My first love. My dad first let me use his Minolta when I was 8)
- Martial Arts (15+ years of Goju Karate, Kobudo and Ju Jitsu)
- Knitting & Crochet (obsessively)
- Jewellery and beadwork
- Knitwear design
- Glass Lampworking (A recent addition, I love it!)
- Prisma Colours & Acrylic Ink (my media of choice for non-digital work)
- Photoshop (15 years and still my weapon of choice)
Things I love and do somewhat less regularly:
- Glass blowing
Things I’d love to take up some day:
- Wood carving
- The fiddle
I’m fostering a love-affair with Judo. I love dancing, snorkelling and cycling, and I’m hoping to take up surfing sometime. I have a dusty guitar that I tune regularly and hope to pay more attention to some day.
I live in beautiful downtown Toronto with 2 furry little bastards (aka cats) and a Salvadoran. He’s crazy in a good way, creative as hell and my partner in crime 😉
