Layout designer, Typography nerd
and aspiring potter.
I am a professional graphic designer with many years of design experience, focusing on all things branding, typography and editorial layout and publication design. Part German, part Portuguese and living in Canada for the past decade, my design work is as versatile as I am. Having worked closely with both marketing teams and developers in the past, I have a broad understanding of how design can work across different platforms, in both on and offline environments.
My favourite snack is popcorn, I love to read and when I’m not at my desk I’m likely in the pottery studio, playing with clay. I'm a big nerd and enjoy attending local design and typography meetups.
I work and live in Vancouver, British Columbia, on the unceded territories of the xʷməθkʷəy̓əm (Musqueam), Sḵwx̱wú7mesh (Squamish) and Sel̓íl̓witulh (Tsleil-Waututh) nations.
Teaching & Mentoring
I'm available for one-on-one mentorship sessions with students or junior-intermediate graphic designers, get in touch! I also occasional take on small speaking engagements, panel discussions or join portfolio reviews, to chat about all things design and freelance.
In the past I've worked as a teacher every other term, teaching a twelve-week Portfolio Development class to students graduating from the Web and Design program at VanArts. I love collaboratively working with the students, helping them determine their career path, refine their final portfolios and sharing all my freelance and design knowledge.
