I currently work as a front-end developer at JRC9 Design Studio, located at the Centre for Social Innovation.
I work with a passionate team committed to helping change-makers and social innovators improve their online presence.
Below is my front-end development work, and further down is my illustration work.
I updated Teach For Canada's Landing Page, Teacher Page and Communities page creating new layouts and templates similar to their existing design.
I built this name generator around the time my best friend was expecting. In the first week of it's launch, the name generator had received 30,000 views world-wide, which I tracked with Google Analytics. I also added a Tweet button, so I could interact with my users and see what names they came up with. You can read more about my process and success here.
This was my first cover illustration for Shameless Magazine. This magazine actually launched my interest and now passion for coding, as this issue covered HackerYou and Ladies Learning Code founder, Heather Payne. I am very proud of this issue, and hope it inspired lots of amazing, kick-ass young girls!

This was an illustration for Azure Magazine's Green Living Issue, and my first major editorial illustration leaving OCAD University. I loved how the feel of the Green House was like a look inside a child's dollhouse.

This piece was from my OCAD Thesis, "Animal Mating Vs. Human Dating". This is the mating ritual of the an angler fish, who lures their mate sneakily and the traps them.
