I first started designing websites in 1998 and began my freelance career as I started her Bachelor of Arts from the University of Guelph in 2000. After graduating, I attended Humber College’s Web Design program in the summer of 2004 and been working full time at a number of companies since then, while continuing my part-time freelance work. In 2010, I enrolled at the Savannah College of Art and Design to work towards my MFA degree in Interactive Design and Game Development through their e-learning program. My breadth of experience and continuing learning has helped me to become a sought-after user experience designer and front end developer. I work with a number of companies as a contract freelancer which enables me to create everything from conceptual workflows to custom jquery banners and everything in between. I work full time for TribeHR designing user-friendly solutions for the world’s least user-friendly field – Human Resources.
My real passion is in the sharing of information. I think the internet is such an amazing tool for transmitting and receiving messages of all shapes and sizes. My goal is to help the right messages meet the right people and it make it look good and be easy to use in the process.
Like every good web designer, I have a few ongoing personal projects and blogs:
- Eleven Media – Creating online experiences for the music industry
- Oaktree Media - I also run a web design company
- Music Lives - Live, local music in Guelph, Ontario
- Unobstructed View – My Tumblr blog focused on sustainable and environment design, practices, and information
- Tommy Knuckles - My 3 year old son has a photoblog
- Song per Day - Collecting my favourite music
Did I say a few? I meant a lot.
