My work has garnered international recognition including multiple Cannes Lions for work with Guinness & the Missing Children Society, Cassies (including 2 Grand Prix’s) for GSK Breathe Right & Hellmann’s, as well as multiple ADCCs, LIAs, CMAs, One Show Pencils, Communication Arts, Applied Arts and dozens of other accolades.

At Grey Canada I worked as the agency’s Digital User Experience Lead and Associate Creative Director. While there I helped reinvigorate the company towards their win 2013 Agency of the Year by the ADCC. Continued success with brands in multiple verticals lead to 2014 & 2015 ranking as one of the Top Art Directors in the country by Strategy Magazine’s Creative Report Card (9th and 15th respectively).

But the story doesn’t stop there. Never one to say no to a challenge I was offered an opportunity in 2015 to return to an agency I previously worked as an Art Director and expand my “Swiss Army-Knife” skill set into company transformation and leadership. Co-leading agency Dashboard in a complete reorganization from 16-year-old marketing firm into a Software SaaS Development Company for sale. Dashboard was acquired by tech firm Vicimus. Where I then led a company rebrand, developed department processes, oversaw the external marketing plan and rebuilt teams. So what’s the next challenge?
