Duration: I’ve been working professionally four-and-a-half years.
Staff: Currently I work as the design director at Collins: in New York City.
Education: A bachelor’s in design from the Alberta College of Art and Design in Calgary, AB, and a Masters in design from the School of Visual Arts in New York.
