I am a Toronto-based interdisciplinary visual communicator driven by endless curiosity, a deep interest in knowledge and creative facilitation, and love of conceptualization. My evocative, conceptually driven imagery has garnered over 40 awards including American Illustration, Communication Arts, The Alberta Magazine Awards (Gold, Silver and Best Illustration) while working with some of today’s most influential publications and brands like the Globe and Mail, Y&R Beijing for Penguin Books, the Walrus, the Progressive, and Runner’s World. My research explores the sublime, information visualization, and art/design. When I’m not teaching or drawing, I can be found happily whizzing around on two wheels and reading about science.

Recent Professional Projects

I am currently illustrating and designing for clients across North America. My research investigates the roll of the sublime in illustration, design, and information visualization. This includes the Sublime Apparatus: a stationary bicycle that allows riders to experience data from the surface of Mars, the perturbations of the 2009 stock market crash, and a heart beat by entangling topographic data and bodily tension.
