Freelance Designer and Creative Director /Founder of Studio Here There
I am Canadian and also a naturalized American and have been a permanent resident of Switzerland for the last 8 years. I am in Bali to start a new chapter in my life.
i am passionate about art and design and I have over 30 years of experience in design while living as an expat in Canada the US and France and Switzerland. My past design experience includes editorial design and art direction for W Europe, annual reports and other printed collateral, logos and wayfinding for various clients. as well as museum design for large scale interactive projects such as the Children’s Museum at the Canadian Museum of Civilization.
I took a long break from design as I concentrated on caring for my family and coordinating international moves. In 2017, with my family no longer requiring as much attention and having the freedom to pivot into a new future, I went back to school and got my MA in Visual Communication from the Basel School of Design. More recently, I have added interior design to my branding, print and digital design projects, completing interiors in the US, France and Switzerland, from extensive renovations to simple redesigned Airbnbs.
So here I am in Bali. My goals, for now, are to start a design studio, become a good surfer, invest and create beautiful things here and continue this adventure.
