I'm a Visual Designer by day, a novelist at night, an illustrator on the weekends, and a not-so-secret bookworm in disguise. I love solving problems and learning how to design for people.
If you love illustration, why did you become a Visual Designer instead?
I find Illustration to be largely isolating, but I love making cool things with other people. Being a Visual Designer helps me to work in teams, design interesting experiences and help people too.
What is your greatest strength (and weakness)?
Self-criticism is my double edged sword. I like having the awareness to notice when details aren’t right, but it causes me to get stuck in my mistakes. Working alongside other creatives have helped me to improve and become a better designer.
I love reading books and typically read over a hundred books per year.
One of my hobbies is playing the piano. I took lessons for seven years and played in recitals.
I've always wanted to be a published author and hope to eventually show the world a novel that I've written myself.

Stressed post-secondary students don't have a way to let them know whether or not they need counselling.
I designed an interactive internet quiz so that students can go through an calming experience to learn how they can improve their current mental state.
Sheridan's counselling office and counsellors gave me information on what kind of issues students come to them for. They gave me the content I needed to create my thesis project.
