A little more about me
I believe in Purpose, People, Process, and Pixels
A well defined purpose is the best motivator for overall happiness and great work.
It's all about people. Treat them with respect, listen to them, and try to help them.
I obsess over processes, whether it's establishing, improving, or finding the right level needed.
A product should work well AND look good, but never at the cost of accessibility.
These are some of my other hats

Iron Ring Wearer
I hold a degree in Software Engineering from the University of Ottawa, with a minor in Engineering Management & Entrepreneurship.
Sailed with my family from Ontario to the Bahamas and back over the course of a year on a homemade trimaran.
Cannes Gold Lion Winner
For the McDonalds Canada "Our Food, Your Questions" campaign. It was Canada's only gold that year!
I was the design co-founder for Flixel Cinemagraph Pro, winner of an Apple Design Award in 2014. They only award up to 12 of these per year, so it's kind of a big deal.
