I used to work in the physical space. Now I work in the digital space. I'm interested in how digital and physical spaces work together. Strategy + brand + design for clients like V&A, ITV, Skype, Technology Will Save Us and RWE I hail from Winnipeg, Canada, where I studied communication design and began my career at a studio called the FaQtory. The building was in an industrial area near a mushroom plant and often smelled of manure. I left my job and country behind to dive into the world of digital, exploring concepts of information processing and digital identity through contemporary art and design at Leeds Met. I wrote a lot about the evolution of the web and produced a series of sculptures that represent our relationship with websites. London was calling and I continued down the art/design path at a startup called Sedition, an e-commerce platform selling limited edition art for screens. I now work for Made by Many, designing products and services that address genuine user needs. The work is incredibly rewarding. In an industry that evolves so rapidly, it makes little sense to stand still. I have an insatiable appetite for learning and have pivoted often over the last ten years. When I'm not working with clients, I'm doing my own side projects and experiments.
