I currently work on full scale go-to-market campaigns for the Retail Marketing UX team at Shopify. Prior to that, I led the design department at the new-age record label Monstercat.

Outside of work I take photos and sell prints, make music and build websites. I'm passionate about clean and engaging designs, and taking on whatever role is needed to create a beautiful piece of work.
