I graduated from the Ontario College of Art and Design in Toronto, Ontario, where my main focus was textile design. I had a dream of a career as a stage designer so I moved to London. After a year making props for some historic West End shows, I was hired to run the report production department at Booz Allen in their London office. They had Xerox Documentors, which I learned how to use, but I quickly brought in Macs, Mac II’s! After too many all-nighters I switched to freelancing, producing data-driven and analytical graphics for management consultants in the UK. I moved to Miami in the 90’s and built up my reputation as a top-notch production person. I did some fantastic jobs for clients like Pepsi, Knight-Ridder and Mercedes-Benz. I got to work with some excellent designers and realize now just how much I learned from them. In 2005 I moved to Las Vegas. There wasn’t the kind of design jobs I was used to in Miami and London. I had several freelance clients there, mostly local businesses. It improved over the years but in the meantime I started my other career, a business decorating bathroom fixtures, decorated bathroom.com. When I’m not making sinks, I fill in the downtime with design, and vice versa. I have many years of design experience and pride myself on doing an excellent job and what the client wants, at the same time.
I am currently living in Florida and spending the summers in Ontario, Canada, I bought a church built in 1882 that I am turning it into a summer home and studio.
