Creative

               

I have big ideas

I am a communications and design professional with a passion for entrepreneurship, creative development and mentorship. 

I have spent 6 years providing strategic creative solutions to non-profits, start-ups and large corporations. A passion for the arts and entrepreneurship has resulted in a body of work that is supportive of the growth of the arts in Calgary. My projects have been to space, featured on CBC Radio, in the music industry, and in educational programming. During my 8 years as an  IT implementation and account manager, I have developed a creative management style, and have a natural ability to connect with people.

My education in visual communications and media arts began at Emily Carr University of Art and Design in Vancouver, and concluded with distinction at Alberta College of Art and Design in the Media Arts and Digital Technologies program at with a Bachelors Degree in Fine Arts. I continue to upgrade my education within the fields of innovation and entrepreneurship. 

I challenge the stereotype of what an artist is. There is no "starving artist" definition in my book. Think "thriving artist" instead.
