I am a communication professional based out of London, Ontario with several years experience creating effective marketing and communication solutions for small businesses and institutions. I have been building websites in one form or another since the 3rd grade and have enjoyed growing up with the ever evolving design and development trends of the digital world and love being a part of such a fast paced and growing field.
When I am not at my computer developing websites, designing graphics or writing copy I am traveling, satisfying my passion for good food, partaking in educational courses, or indulging in various forms of media. My music tastes range from Indie New Wave Pop/Rock, Electronic, Dubstep to Classic Rock.
I hold a college diploma in Internet Applications and Web Development from Durham College and a certificate in Project Management from Western Continuing Studies. I am currently employed full time with Western University as a Digital Marketing Manager for WORLDiscoveries, the business development office. My role is to provide marketing advice and support to a team of commercialization professionals who represent the innovations produced by London’s top research institutions. I also implement a variety of marketing activities to enhance and support technology transfer and outreach initiatives.
What I Do
With a strong design and front end web development background I like to offer up my services to small businesses and nonprofits. I specialize in creating custom, modern, and simple solutions for businesses who want to refresh an existing web presence or build one from the ground up. I have also done various forms of print design.
I have experience with Adobe Creative Suite, MS Office, WordPress, Convio, iCreate, Google Analytics, HTML5, CSS3, jQuery, and PHP.
