Now, let's get to work.

I’m a new media developer living and working in Winnipeg, Manitoba, Canada. I’m the current new media developer at the University of Manitoba‘s Marketing and Communications Office, former web developer at CTV Winnipeg, and I also have some work I do on the side.

Some of my work

At my day job, I help design, implement and provide insight for the Marketing and Communications Office’s new media projects.

To Tell Stories

By night (and at lunch) I create digital and traditional illustrations in a variety of themes and styles for sale at conventions and for commission.

On the weekends, I find out what’s new and nerdy in Winnipeg and Manitoba, and share them through news posts and social media.
