I started my ‘agency’ career in 2005 working on various clients and a lifestyle magazine at Little Green Tree in Burlington Ontario. In 2007 I moved to Toronto for five years and started working with Dashboard as an Art Director on Digital and Direct marketing. Before moving back to Burlington and commuting daily into the city. In 2010 I joined Grey Canada and become their Digital User Experience Lead & Associate Creative Director, helping Grey Canada win ADCC’s 2013 Agency Of The Year.
In 2015 I Left Grey to Co-lead the complete transformation of Dashboard, from a 16-year-old marketing firm into a Software SaaS Development Company as their CCO and continued with Vicimus after they acquired Dashboard in 2017 (where I became VP, Creative Strategy, then CCO). You can read about that and see projects in my client-side section.
