I've been a Graphic Designer for the past 24 years and I've done work for the Fashion/Retail industry nationally for the past 15. I've done design work/signage work for various charitable organizations such as the Brain Trust, Art With Heart, the Canadian Breast Cancer Foundation, Kids Help Phone and The Roberta Bondar Foundation.
I was active in the Toronto Boardgaming community for about 6 and half years via my donations of graphics/design/signage/time/advertisement to TABS (Toronto Area Boardgaming Society, The Toronto Math Trade, and FanExpo Canada. I've also donated signage to Meeplemart, Castlecon, the Great Canadian Boardgame Blitz, Snakes & Lattes Math Trade, and Breakout Con Toronto. I've also donated stickers for Wood For Sheep and 5 of my game mats for Shuffle & Roll (National Post). I was formerly on the TABS Steering Community for over 4 years and have organized TABS presence at FanExpo for 3 years and the Hobby Show/Great Canadian Game Show.
I have won 2 design contests. The logo Design for Meeplemart and the 2nd TABS Game Design Competition. I have also won four Best Pimped boardgame of the month contests here on BGG. The 29th
contests. In early 2016, I was awarded a "Kluntje King" badge as a Hall of Fame Boardgame pimp on BGG.
I'm looking for new ways to promote the hobby across all Game Groups in the area as I believe only growth will keep the community alive. I also believe that boardgaming can bring people together in a way that is both unique and satisfying...so its time to actively start teaching the kids! :-)
