learn a bit more about me

I’m a designer, art director and photographer. I strive for impact in any work I do because I believe in the power of communicating through art and design.
I graduated OCAD University in 2020 with a Bachelors of Design in Advertising. That is where I grew my passion for art direction and design.

I founded my own venture, 512 Collective, back in 2016. Over the years, I’ve worked with varying clients on different creative projects. I have worked with many individuals on strengthening their personal branding, website and social media. I also specialize in art direction, working on projects ranging from company rebranding, product collections, short films, set design, photo campaigns, poster series, events etc.

After years of expanding a variety of my digital, design and communication skills, I have learned how important it is to push my creative ideas beyond what is expected. That is why in most of my work, I capture and create through the lens of an art director. I’m constantly thinking of ways to connect ideas with an artistic vision, to tell a story. It is always my goal to work with creatives who I can learn from and who celebrate diversity, efficiency and impact just as much as I do.
