I moved into digital design in 2010 and took the position of Creative Director for MoxyUp from 2010 to 2015, developing WordPress sites. I accepted a position as Art Director for Zeekee/Bell Media from 2015 to 2019 developing WordPress sites, brand creation, design marketing materials, UI design, etc,. I’ve started working with FastSlowMotion in Oct, 2019 as a User Experience Consultant.

Picasso is sitting in a Paris café when a fan approaches the artist and asks that he make a quick sketch on a paper napkin. Picasso acquiesces, draws his dove and promptly hands it back to his admirer along with an ask for a rather large sum of money. The fan is flummoxed. “How can you ask for so much. It took you a minute to draw this.” To which Picasso replies, “No, it took me 40 years.”
