Welcome to my personal website & blog (which as a passionate culinarian is mostly food & other cookery).

I'm a freelance designer from Canada's rocky east coast, now living in the middle. I'm also known to dabble in some coding.

I believe strongly in the practices and ethos of open source and as such I participate in and contribute to several free software projects.

    As one of my favourite areas of design, I use an entirely free & open source software toolkit to help me create beautiful & functional icons.

    It's also one of my main areas of contribution to open source projects (such as my Ubuntu icon work).
