We’re two creative (and nerdy) moms that have teamed up in life and design.
Illustration & Design
I am an illustrator and self-professed “designerd” with a creative and a playful way of approaching chaos. I graduated from the Computer Graphics program at the International Academy of Design & Technology and have been working in design for over fifteen years.
I’m a Frontend and UX Designer who has been known to revert to the lost art of pen and paper (only in extreme circumstances). If you need a little edge or new ideas I can make that happen.
My working style is casual and supportive. I love to laugh and I’m happy to give you lots of reassurance if technology keeps you up at night. If you’re looking for video game concept design you’d be making my dreams come true.
When I’m not working I’m gaming, creating my own universe, or prepping for the apocalypse. I keep Nicole from getting bored and enjoy keeping our four-year-old entertained or at least out of trouble at the daycare.
Design & Direction
I started out with a Batchelor of Design from Ryerson University and then discovered that I love to apply the fundamentals of design to practically everything – spreadsheets, graphics, code, folding laundry. Staying calm in the midst of chaos (maybe a carry-over from my yoga-teaching past) and coming up with creative solutions to operational problems are my superpowers. I like to create materials that are both attractive and functional. I’m a nerd, an avid reader, and a committed introvert. I work quietly behind the scenes so that your work can shine.
As the Operations Manager for Michael Stone, I managed an online community of thousands, as well as keeping all the moving pieces organized. I built and provided technical support for websites, online courses, social media, newsletters, graphic design and more.
I currently work as the Director of Operations & Communications for the New Leaf Foundation, a youth service organization that provides yoga and mindfulness programs to youth in marginalized communities. In my spare time I have been completing the Digital Skills program with Ladies Learning Code.
