I am a Halifax-based interdisciplinary designer and I've been working under my own studio, Forest Friend Creative Projects, since 2011. I completed my undergraduate education at the University of King’s College in 2008 and Master of Design (MDes) degree at NSCAD University in 2010. I now teach in NSCAD's Division of Design and the School of Extended Studies.
I provide holistic, cross-platform design solutions tailored to the challenges of each project. My design process is iterative and flexible, meshing fine arts & crafts with new media & technology.
I enjoy breaking rules and exploring for unusual sources of creative inspiration.
