Hiya! I'm a Brand and Web designer based in Toronto but working worldwide (thank you, freelance gods!)

My strength and passion lie in noticing and translating emotions and behaviours into intuitive and visually beautiful design.

I specialize in developing visual brand identity elements and user-friendly website design through comprehensive market and audience research. My work is focused on helping small businesses achieve their goals and adapting to diverse types of projects with efficiency, structure, and strategy.

One of my favourite things about being a designer is working with curious and driven people whose products enhance hospitality industry and elevate experiences.

A cover banner showing the illustrations of plants and a mushroom.
Like every family, this PlantFam has an array of personalities and characters. Which one are you today, a silly Toadstool or a gentle Snowdrop?

Created through doodling, these illustrations will add lightness and personality to any design project, big or small.
