Biography

Born and raised in Toronto, I knew early on that my heart would always be rooted in the creative realm. I was never really at a loss for inspiration – growing up surrounded by a visual artist/graphic designer/art director for a brother and a singer/songwriter/copywriter for a sister will do that for you.

At Sheridan College, I started experimenting with a variety of art forms, which in turn led to the discovery that would change everything – a deep interest in the communicative world of advertising. Two years later, I ended up at OCAD University, learning how to channel creativity from the conception of an idea to its realization. Constantly and unconsciously taking in ads and their messages, reinterpreting them and reimagining them.
