Great creative is great for business

Everything I do is based on that premise. My ‘business-first’ mindset shapes my belief that creative should be strategic, targeted, of the highest quality, and get results. As a Creative Director, that has always been my focus.

It’s hard to stand out in today’s crowded marketing landscape. Wrapping brands in strategic and products that resonate with audiences is the first step in not only getting noticed, but staying relevant. Whether it’s a simple as a new logo or as complex as a full brand audit, strategic plan and extensive online and social campaign, that’s my specialty—developing experiences and products that are memorable, on-message, on-target, and that equip brands with the tools they need to grow.

    My instinct for winning ideas comes from 30+ years experience on the Ottawa creative agency scene. The works on this website represent creative projects I’ve lead and produced as a creative director and senior designer. I’ve lead the development of 1000s of brands for small businesses through to multi-nationals and have always prided myself on bringing new ideas—and a perfectionist mindset—to the table on every project.
