About Me

Award winning, creative strategy implementing, results focused, true believer of enthusiastic commitment

A Canadian First Nations Creative Director with 18 years of experience.

Born and raised in Saskatchewan, and one of the very few First Nations Creative Directors in Canada. Career focus is to develop a broad and encompassing portfolio for First Nations businesses and expand and modernize their visual communications. His work is usually layered with culture, vernacular, and irreverence.

He spends his spare time developing ways to promote the Design and Advertising profession in Saskatchewan. He co-founded the largest design and advertising show in the province – The Elevator Awards. He is currently developing and testing a design/advertising course called The Preparatory which has the mandate to help First Nations youth develop portfolio and conceptual skills – a Saskatchewan first. He’s created and executed a recurring design-themed art show called S P R E A D. When not working on these projects he has committed hundreds of hours to various other local design committees and interests such as The Graphic Designers of Canada, and Premier’s Awards.

Design is Art is Work. I am constantly intrigued and encouraged by Milton Glaser’s original quote, “Art is Work.” I truly believe that when message is paired with concept, and there is commitment to exceed the brief, the work will surpass the perceived expectations of all parties – the creatives, the clients, and the target audience.

*After the initial meetings, and with an accepted budget, and following the approval stages of the brief… it always starts with pencil and paper. Sometimes it’s a pen. Sometimes it’s in a sketchbook. Typically it’s on 8.5 x 11 bond. In stacks. It’s the magical time when simple ideas become working concepts through intense scrutiny, prodding, research, and craft.
