About 

My passion for design has allowed me to gain a wide range of experience in many areas, including graphics, architecture, and products, in the private, public, and non-profit sectors. Before starting on my current path toward professional licensure in architecture, I used my previous education in industrial design (OCAD 2007) to develop cutting-edge jewelry and tools for the tattooing and body piercing industry, many of which have become industry standards. My approach to design bridges the gap between product, environment, and experience.
