Why am I a designer?A large part of my background from childhood has been immersed into the art world. My father is a design engineer at an architectural firm and loved art. So it was only natural, I adopted his love for art and design concepts. Throughout my career, I’ve been very passionate about problem solving and utilizing visual elements to tell stories and convey messages. Naturally, as a millennial staying on trend is extremely important to me especially when you’re placed positions requiring you to connect with the stakeholders. That said, I realized about 8 years ago, I needed to pivot in my art and design career to learn various graphic design platforms such as Adobe Creative Suite applications, Figma, Procreate, and Sketch. Throughout my freelance career and time with Department of Parks and Recreation, I’ve been very strategic about finding ways to employ design thinking when creating new marketing campaigns on print and digital platforms, as well as ensure brand consistency is applied throughout.
Why should you hire me?I recognize the importance of selecting a candidate that can visually conceptualize the identity the city and communities with in, as well as produce innovative work and design solutions that speaks to stakeholders.
Where do I see myself in 5 years?In 5 years, I see myself working as an in house Creative Director for an agency in Toronto, London, or Paris.
