THE DESIGNER

  • Powell River, BC is where I call home
  • Since 2001 I have been working as a freelance graphic designer based in Vancouver, BC
  • I subscribe to the theory and practice that less is more
  • I don't choose clients with a frivolous message and they, in turn, don't choose me
  • "Minimize clutter, maximize impact," is one of my mantras
  • Laser cutting is a mild obsession
  • Keeping the 'print' part of design as environmentally-friendly as possible is a special interest. To this end I can suggest earth-friendly options to eco-conscious clients

THE REST OF ME

  • Reading books—made of paper not pixels—and writing letters—that get posted not emailed—are great analog pastimes of mine. In fact, I once spent a year blogging about the art of letter writing
  • I continually strive for balance and simplicity in a world of diversions, disposability, and excess
  • I have a rescue dog named Iris who gets me away for much needed breaks from the computer
