I've recently moved back to Vancouver after being in Toronto for the last 10 years. I grew up in a small town in Northern BC, and the lack of mountains in Ontario still throws me for a loop. I work as a freelance graphic designer, running my own shop. Ideally I'd like to one day live on one of the gulf islands near the sunshine coast in a home made out of shipping containers, accessible only by boat, but with a high speed internet connection.
I live a pretty healthy lifestyle and like to take care of myself, but still manage to get into trouble every now and then. I like running, biking, yoga, dinners, brunches, seeing shows, entertaining, pubs, parks, photo booths, hiking, camping, juicing, and seeing my RMT once a month.
What I’m doing with my life
I spent the first 4 months of this year avoiding the east coast winter and travelling around South America, the goal for next year is getting my full motorcycle license. I am always thinking about my next trip, eager to do a trip down the west coast of Canada and the US with motorbikes and tents.
I like to continually challenge myself in different ways. Last year I learned to box and fought my first fight. It's pretty empowering getting into a ring with the sole purpose of punching another guy more than he punches you.
I’m really good at

I spend a lot of time thinking about
Which typeface suits what style of button for which type of user? Whether moving back to BC was the right decision? What's the best route to get where I'm going around the city? What happened to that thing that used to be here?
On a typical Friday night I am
There is no typical Friday night, I could be at yoga, at dinner, at
home, at a bar, preparing for a race, watching movies, travelling,
or hiding out.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I got a tramp stamp when I was 19.
