Cellphone camera, digital SLR, film SLR, lomo LC-A, lomo fisheye, smena 8M, polaroid, etc - I love all cameras and have collected quite a few; mostly from thrift shops and the occasional dumpster dive.

I LOVE the post-production process. I love to edit my photos and bring a completely different feel & energy to the scene(s) or     o     b     j     e     c     t     (     s     )    .

I bought a few cellphone lenses from Japan which have produced pretty amazing photos. The macro lens is my favorite. With a steady hand you can capture some of the smallest of natureís creatures.

Most of the time I find these perfect little subjects when Iím riding my bike around the paths & parks of     T       O       R       O       N       T      O

The type of lens I am using is made by Kenko. I recently purchased another type of macro lens for the cellphone which is made by Toda Seiko, also known as Digital King.

I love to design (especially to music). Self-taught, I began designing and building websites in 2001, using Microsoft Notepad & help from lissaexplains.com. I've owned & maintained two domains, both of which were updated regularly, and received a couple hundred visitors per day.

I bought my first digital camera in 2003; a Canon Powershot G3. It took my passion for imagination to another level. I began shooting my own images to use in my work making my creations more of a multimedia showcase than just a layout. I wanted to bring out as much of my creativity as possible.

2007-2009: I took an unexpected hiatus from design. I did a couple small projects here & there, but ultimately I wanted it full time. So I quit my job, went back to school, got an A+ in Dreamweaver, built this site, and am now getting back into the groove. Inspired, I am excited to start new projects

while continuing to expand my skills in the realm of multimedia.

SKILLS: web/print/graphic design, some motion/flash experience, HTML/CSS. Learning: Wordpress

Now that youíve seen the goods, hereís where I tell you what Iím all about:

I grew up in the Ďburbs. One day, a company called AOL Canada sent a disc in the mail offering a 1 month free trial of their services. Dad signed us up, and so began my affair with the internet.

I created and updated my own domains, got bit by the photography bug, started to get into animation and video, and then all my hard work paid off. Straight out of high school I got an internship at a television

production company in Toronto. Internship turned into a permanent gig where I created on-air graphics, animations, went on shoots, and worked with some super creative & talented people.

I moved onto working in the finance industry as an "IT Guy"/Network Admin. It wasnít speaking to me creatively...

Currently, Iím working as a personal assistant to an author, but I would love to join a team of artists and designers to learn from, and collaborate with, on pretty

much anything: web, print, video, social media, cross media, online promotion, etc. But I do fly solo as a freelancer as well. My CV is available for download below.

I'm a quirky little creature with art on my body, and a lot in my mind. I've learned you gotta trip the mind, expand it, forget stuff, learn more, THINK, consume everything; but most importantly: nourish the stuff that speaks to your soul.
