Download Resume


I am a creative, innovative and autonomous designer with a strong eye for detail. I am very capable of multi-tasking, working both independently or with a team, as well as adapting to any specific task quickly and easily. I am a versatile human being, willing to embark on any path that comes my way. I am highly confident, charismatic, autonomous, with strong leadership skills and quick learning skills. I am also fluently bilingual in both French and English. I am very experienced in the Adobe Creative Suite. HTML and CSS are a specialty of mine, as well as photo editing, typography, website layout mock ups, composition and conceptualization.

I began showing an interest in Web and graphic design in 2006, when I put together a website for my band “Fluid Rouge”, along with our electronic press kit and album artwork. In 2008, I designed a quirky new website for Internet comedian Jon Lajoie (formerly of Fluid Rouge) and as his career snowballed, I assumed more responsibilities where graphic and Web design/maintenance are concerned. I went on to designing 2 of his album artwork layouts, as well as all his tour merchandise.

I began studying Web Technologies in 2009 through the British Columbia Institute of Technology’s distance program, receiving an associate’s degree with distinction 2 years later, for maintaining an overall average of 96%.

I have been freelancing from that point on, with several regular clients. My most regular client is a company called Inspirations De Noel. I am going on my 6th year doing seasonal work for them. I’ve gone from photo editing, to designing all of their promotional business material, as well as their e-newsletters and business cards.

I recently earned my AEC in Infographic Design through Lasalle College online. I am extremely passionate about graphic design, and put my entire heart and soul into my work. I am willing to take on any task, and will complete that task with utmost efficiency and creativity.

While I am ideally looking for a position that would allow me to work from my home office, I am open to all possibilities.
