PARTNER, SOCIAL MEDIA DIRECTOR
I am driven by seeking to understand why and utilizing the best of tech and business to build solutions and seize opportunities for our clients.
In 2000 I accepted a position as a Content Specialist at Seagate Software in Vancouver after previously learning the ropes with a local start up. It was an interesting start for having completed a BA in International Relations at the University of British Columbia. Working on the web team at a business intelligence company in the early development years fired up my imagination and passion for technology, online development, and the opportunities ahead. As Seagate Software grew and rebranded into Crystal Decisions, my role changed to usability specialist, business analyst and quality assurance specialist. With later opportunities with Electronic Arts, Team Lead in Burnaby, BC, and Evoco, as a Systems Analyst, here in Calgary, I continued to grow my desire to understand business needs, drive solutions and focus on value. Since 2008 this passion has been focused on real estate and unique ways to market and grow a successful real estate business. Fast forward and today that same passion to drive is now focused on local business through Ridgewalk Media.
PARTNER, USER EXPERIENCE DESIGN, GRAPHIC DESIGN, CREATIVE DIRECTION
I am driven by a curiosity and passion to understand how things work and how I can make them even better and more beautiful in the process.
With a diploma in Multimedia Design and Communications, I recognized early on that my passion was fueled by helping others find creative solutions to problems and was eager to apply my skills in more practical applications. Beginning at Shaw as a web designer for 5 years I moved to Evoco, a startup tech company. Thru Evoco, I was able to attend a User Experience conference, in San Francisco, put on by industry leaders in UX Design, The Neilson Norman Group. This approach to design and usability, further fueled my passion. Eventually Evoco grew and was acquired by Accruent, an American competitor. I then moved on to begin my own design company, providing an opportunity to work with a diverse group of companies. My time at Evoco also led me to work with Monika and we have been friends and collaborators since.
My career has allowed me to work with some amazing companies, both big and small and participate in the facilitation of solutions for companies like WalMart, Colgate and Lego, design published books and support some wonderful charitable initiatives, in support of Adoption (a cause that is very dear to my heart) and Down Syndrome.
