About

I’m a graphic designer based in Vancouver, Canada. Design is a passion of mine, and while packaging design is my specialty, I have experience working with an array of design formats.

Adventure and exploring? Count me in. I am a very active individual who is always up for a new adventure. I am passionate about the outdoors and in my spare time, one can usually find me near the ocean. I am a certified sea kayak instructor and I love playing in rough seas. In addition to kayaking, I kiteboard, surf, and spend multiple days hiking in the mountains. In the winter months, I ski and snowshoe.

Core skill set

  • Loads of experience working with a multitude of packaging formats.
  • Visual design for printed or web-based marketing collaterals.
  • Excellent with Adobe InDesign, Illustrator, and Photoshop (I’m quick to!).
  • Preflight and prepress knowledge.
  • Product photography experience.

 

Why_Beachpebbles

This website is my online portfolio. Its purpose is to present some samples of projects that I have either designed myself, or collaborated with a team to design.

The name was chosen to reflect my adventurous side. While on my many kayaking and hiking trips, I have come across a wide range of beaches here in British Columbia. From the rugged coastline of Clayoquot Sound, to the sculpted sandstone of the Gulf Islands; each stone is an unique piece of art.
