About

BIOWelcome to Plan R Communications.

I am a visual thinker who possesses a BA in economics from Concordia University in Montreal, a BFA in film-making from SUNY Purchase in New York and a master’s degree in digital media from The Centre for Digital Media in Vancouver. Over the past 20 years, I wrote, shot & edited a digital feature in Manhattan, I’ve water skied with Moby, been on the cover of Godsmack’s Faceless, met Mickey Rourke and had an extra acting appearance in Mariah Carey’s video “Bringin’ on the Heartbreak”. I’ve also studied, lived and worked in New York City, Los Angeles, Aix-en-Provence, France and Southeast Asia, where my area of expertise was in visual communication and digital media design, both as a professional and academic.

This portfolio contains a selected sample of my own work (Industry Projects) as a Graphic Designer & Digital Media Designer and a variety of my students’ work (Student Projects).

The (Industry Projects) are samples of selected work I’ve produced as a digital media and graphic design professional. All the (Student Projects) on this site were produced under my guidance and supervision as lecturer and inspiring motivator. The work represents the best of my students’ efforts over the past 6 years.
