Bio

Processed with VSCO

I’m a full-time graphic designer and freelance writer living in Edmonton, Alberta, and a graduate of MacEwan University’s Design Studies program and Simon Fraser University’s New Media Journalism program. I was also the Founding-Editor and Publisher of Marker magazine – an independent print and online publication that ran for three years, ending in December 2015.

My writing has appeared in Afropunk, Avenue and Vue Weekly, and some of my design clients have included the Make-A-Wish Foundation, The John Humphrey Centre for Peace and Human Rights, and the Edmonton Multicultural Coalition.
