I AM

an experienced Senior Graphic Designer with multi-facetted experience and expertise in Print, Web, Multi-media, Branding, and Marketing. I have a 3 year design diploma from Sheridan College and certificates in various web skills, and utilized practical web design skills honed over the years (in static flash, xhtml - front end, CSS and CMS). I am heavily experienced in all facets of design, print, screen printing graphics, large format (trade shows) design and builds, and production art. I have exposure to new business research, client relations, and marketing/social channel experience. I have stand-alone studio experience, and experience in team environments.

I have experience in video editing and experience in Prezi. I have social media and personal blog experience as well as experience in photography and successful ecommerce ventures. I am fluent on Mac and PC. I have experience in analytics, flexibility in new software environments, and proven experience in various CMS.

MERIDIAN COUNTY {noun}
From an injury, to a wall painting; now an expanding digital landscape over this incomplete journey.

I WAS

born into a family where several relatives are classically trained.
I was not. I decided to make it on a 'perfect ear' alone.

I was involved in several bands in my 20s, originally as a rhythm guitarist for a three piece band, then after losing my left index finger, a keyboardist and writer for two bands (with some drums); eventually becoming an engineer of sortsout of shear desperation and necessity. The true progressive garage band experience I guess you would say.

It wasnt until 2006, more than 15 years after playing live in a band, when I dusted off my Roland HS-60 studio board following years of neglect, and decided to get back to jamming again. It had been such a long a time; it felt amazing and was then that I decided to start writing again. Here we are today... 10 collections in, twelve years on ~ from reckless high school kids kicking it around in a Mississauga basement, to where I am now. I'm older and more in love with creating music now than ever before. I have been lucky to meet some key people over the years, who are gifted musicians, and who have taught me a lot about music; inspiring me to move forward trying new things with my work.

I love the process, the collaborations, and posting new music. I like how my mind keeps sending me a riff to start from. My trip is cajoling these sounds to becoming moments together. I hope you get it. I hope you enjoy my work. Thank you for listening!

TAKE A LOOK AROUND YOU




Notice the state of the world? Pollution from automobiles, steel plants, dry cleaners, etc. Dumping by oil tankers, corporations, your neighbours, etc. Developers greedy for money; tearing down the forests and moraines lightning-quick, in favour of condos and fully detached homes, uprooting all species of animal and plant life indigenous to those areas. Each year we further the effectiveness by which we obliterate the natural landscapes and environments of Earth. We mindlessly destroy the balance and beauty of the globe and replace it with a noxious horizon of filth, and a barren wasteland that points directly to man's blatant greed, carlessness and wastefulness.

Time is running out and we need to change how we coexist with nature.
Please take a stand and do whatever you can; whenever and wherever you can.

 
Write your MPP and MP, and tell them you want change. Please support agencies that advocate the environment.
