My Design Principles

I believe in producing functional, clean and simple but strong designs, while always keeping the clients’ interest at heart. As a designer and developer, it’s very important for me to understand each of my client’s unique needs and what makes their business tick. Lastly but definitely not least, I want to build lasting working relationships with my clients and to see them succeed!

I do a variety of work for clients, ranging from print media to web development. Take a look through my portfolio and send me a message. 🙂

Keeping Connected in the Industry

I keep connected in the industry by volunteering to mentor and instruct classes with Edmonton’s chapter of Ladies Learning Code; a volunteer driven cross-Canada non-profit aimed at women and youth to become passionate builders of technology. I also try to attend WordPress meetups to stay current in the WordPress development.

When I’m Not Hard at Work

In my spare time you’ll find me trying new recipes, watching Shomi and Netflix (who doesn’t like a good Netflix night?!), trying out new restaurants and coffee shops with friends and spending quality time with my family. I also spend quite of bit of time creating new art pieces to sell on Etsy, be sure to check out my shop and follow me on Etsy.

Travel is a definite passion! I’ve been to quite a few places already, but they are still many places I’d like to go! I could go on forever about all things I like and would like to do in my spare time, but I won’t here….check out my blog for interesting things to come!
