I am a Graphic Designer working in the Toronto area with more than 15 years experience. That time has seen me work on variety of projects (print and web) on a full-time and freelance basis. As a foundation, I studied Fine Art (Fanshawe College), Applied Commercial Photography (Sheridan College) and Graphic Design Fundamentals (George Brown College). My experience as a production artist has seen me work on various print and online visual communications. Through constant exploration of typography, imagery and illustration, I am a designer with conceptual skills as well. I have designed original work for various clients, and have seen projects from concept to completion.
A few of the agencies I’ve worked for are: Grip Limited, Constellation Brands, Ogilvy Mather, DentsuBos, Draft FCB, Rosetta, Leo Burnett, Oxford Properties, Invesco Trimark, Motum B2B Marketing, Quadrant Marketing, Thomson Reuters and Jackman Reinvents. More recently I held a Senior Designer position at Cheil Canada for 3-years before moving to Puerto Escondido, Mexico for 2018 to Summer 2019.
Outside of my career, I’m a husband and father of 2 daughters. Proud Dutchman. Guilty of cracking Dad-jokes. Avid cyclist: road, cross, mountain...you name it, I’ll try it. I like a good beer, local foods and doing my part for the environment.
My family and I recently returned to Toronto from our year away in Mexico. I am currently looking for a new position with a forward thinking company.
