About

“The future belongs to those who believe in the beauty of their dreams.”

– Eleanor Roosevelt


We’re all builders, creators, instigators… and dreamers. I’ve learned to face every obstacle with creativity; to fulfill my purpose by trusting my instincts; and to tread with confidence, one foot in front of the other.

I’m a Creative Director in brand and digital experience in the beautiful city of Calgary, Alberta. You can find me flexing my creative muscles for my next project or spending time with my family. Our favourite weekend destinations are the Calgary Zoo, Bow River pathway, and Kananaskis.
