After graduating from the University of Toronto in 1999 I decided to do a one year intensive degree in Multimedia Arts through Trebas Institute. This led me to a job in the print industry working in post production. I lived and breathed colour theory and printing processes in my four years with the company before moving on for a short term stint at a small design agency in a managerial position. From both these experience I was able to learn about the printing process from conception of the art to the final printing.
In mid 2013 I started working at the Royal Canadian Yacht Club as their Graphic Designer and Photographer where I have helped redesign their monthly magazine, Kwasind and photograph their events. I work on promotion of events at the Club by designing posters and web banners with the occasional slideshow video for events.
