The tedious account of my life isn't very extravagant, but keeping it to a couple of sentences makes it sound a lot more exciting. I grew up in Kitchener, Ontario where I also attending Conestoga College studying Graphic Design. It was a fantastic environment to learn in and a great time in my life. From here I went to Brisbane, Australia's Queensland College of Art to further my studies. This was also fantastic, albeit a bit warmer. In terms of professional work, I was employed with a series of design studios as one of the many "designers who illustrate". I've been very fortunate as now I'm back at Conestoga College in a teaching capacity. I'll tell you that school is VERY different from the other side of the desk.
