After spending the first 10 years of my life being raised in Montréal, Québec, my family relocated to Los Angeles in 1989. It was in this new and contrasting environment where my creative spark ignited. Drawing inspiration everywhere from renowned artists like MC Escher and Dali, to Mad Magazine and comic books, I began dabbling in hand-drawn illustration, painting, and graphic design. Even the skills and styles of favorite professional skateboarders, the urban playground of LA, and the music scene influenced my work. In 2002 I received a BA in Visual Communications from the American Intercontinental University and entered the professional world of Design.
Since that time, I have filled many days (and more nights than I'd like to admit) designing cross-platform web and mobile sites for clients ranging from Apple, Hero Digital, Eero, Informatica, Capital One, SVB, Bloomin' Brands, and Lean In. My expertise and passion is in creating brand identities, online digital experiences, painting, drawing and documenting the world through the eyes of my beloved camera lenses. While my job title currently reads Principal Visual Designer I consider myself to be much more. First and foremost an artist, an observer, a documenter, and a collaborative designer comfortable working in both large agencies and small startups, in-house and freelance. Creativity and talent are tools that positively impact the world around us and I'm inspired to take on that challenge every day.
