About me and my career in design.

I earned my degree in Illustration & Design from Montreal's Dawson College arts program. I worked as a graphic designer for many years, first as an employee and then later as a self-employed entrepreneur, serving small, medium, and large businesses such as FAO Schwarz, Disney, Warner Brothers, CN Rail, Bombardier, and Johnson & Johnson. Throughout my career, I've also supervised art departments, art-directed photo shoots, and managed small teams to help create and deliver finished products.

In 2016, still active with my own studio, I joined the team at YPR Canada, a Social Media Amplification and Marketing company that helps organizations increase revenues, create brand equity through strategic communications, and generate brand awareness via social networks and traditional news media.

And more recently, after years of blogging about health and life and receiving acclaim for my writing, I have added bilingual copywriting to my skills and services.
