I am a digital designer in Vancouver, Canada and I am currently working as a Senior Communication Designer for Simon Fraser University's, Communications and Marketing team. My skills include interface and experience design, front-end development, graphic design and motion graphics. My personal projects mix my skills in interface design with my love for film-making. I have a Masters of Art and a Bachelor of Applied Science degree from the School of Interactive Arts and Technology at SFU. Awards include: Horizon Interactive Awards, Webby Awards, and the Canadian Network for Innovation in Education (CNIE/RCIE) Media Festival Award.
I enjoy finding creative ways to tell stories, especially ones that don't have a traditional linear format. I create interactive films that explore new ways of telling a story and innovative ways of designing an interactive system. My research and interactive films have been showcased at the Women in Film Festival, iDMAa IDEAS Digital Narrative exhibition, ACM International Conference on Multimedia, Imaging Cinema Conference at the India Institute of Technology in Madras and as an article in the Journal of the International Digital Media and Arts Association.
Editing is another one of my passions and I believe the magic of the story comes alive through editing. I was lucky to be nominated for a Leo Award in 2011 for Best Picture Editing - Short Drama for the short film Therapy. A few of my other films have also won first and second place as part of the 48 hour, Arts Connect: Quick Flick Challenge.
