Branding

Almost two decades of Professional Experience.

I've always been focused on a creative career, but have followed three roads so far; animation, illustration, and design. Lucky for me, these paths intertwine and cross-over quite often and I don't feel that I've wasted any of my education or experience. On the contrary!

Visual Storytelling as an approach on varied projects.

I've always used visual media to tell stories; from bringing characters to life through their apparatus, to the non-verbal language of animation. Extending this into design helps me build
clean & concise interface.

Developing expertise in Emergent Narrative.

Creating meaningful stories in an interactive environment can be a challenge, especially when historical methods fall so flat. I've been engaging the community on this particular subject and challenging others to help
develop new processes.

Skills aimed straight at Tomorrow's Technology.

As an award-winning art director on narrative-driven virtual reality, I've gained experience in this new and ground-breaking medium. Established narrative methods and cinematography fail in VR, and it will take new thinking to solve these novel issues.

About

BIO

I'm a design director, writer, and illustrator based out of Toronto, Canada with almost twenty years of combined experience working in several creative capacities.

I began my career working in animation for film, television, and the gaming industries. I worked primarily in 2D pre-production as a concept designer and layout artist. AS my skill set broadened, I gained a level of competency in CSS & HTML and a comprehensive understanding of user experience design.

For the last ten years I've worked almost exclusively in the interactive field, acquiring a diverse and comprehensive skill set that allows me to adapt to a variety of situations.

I am currently the senior Art Director with the award-winning Secret Location, where I work with a dedicated and talented team of professionals.
