I am an interdisciplinary creative with a passion for words. Drawing on training from the York University/Sheridan College Joint Program in Design, as well as a lifelong passion for all things literary, my work largely operates at the intersection of typography, graphic design and creative and critical writing. I emphasize research and exploration in everything I do, thrive on variety, and am always eager to learn new things.
