Why I am, the way I am...
So, welcome! You have unintentionally ventured into a visual representation of my brain. Yes, I know this sounds very weird, but stay with me. It's going to make sense. This website not only showcases my work but is constantly evolving. Hence, you get a front-row seat into the obscurities of my mind. In my brand's design, there is meaning. I am a product of the past, in the future, constantly learning and developing my craft from people who are a lot better than myself, and taking past design principles and putting a new spin on them. Hence the relationship between Cooper Black and this ink trap typeface and many other elements as well.
Now, my history.
I have a long, for my age, history in wedding, product and event photography📷 that spans about 6 years. I think I started when I was 16, yep that's right.
I then transitioned to website design and found marketing my avenue in my last year of high school, albeit when I had already spent 4 years intensively studying culinary arts👨🍳.
I attended Mohawk College👨🏼🎓 for advertising to become an Art Director.
Fresh out of college, I had a great stint at Cass & Zack Inc., working with cannabis🌿 brands in all capacities. Now, I don't smoke and didn't know a thing about weed beforehand. Still, suppose you need to know about extracts, terpenes, cannabinoids and heck, even flavenoids and how they make or break the cannabis experience. In that case, I'm your guy, somehow. 😂
My most recent experience has been with fuelcontent/FCB Toronto. That team is insanely talented🤯. They taught me a lot about print production, and the opportunities in working with such prominent international brands were incredible.
Now, I am looking for my next endeavour.
