thumbnail-pixel-tank-article HOW TO THROW AN ADOPTION PARTY FOR YOUR DOG

November 15, 2016 // - - - - - - - - -

If you follow me on Instagram, then you already know that I have the best dog in the world. Hands down, no argument, don’t even try to dispute it because I will win. I’m writing this with him on my lap right now though, so I might be the slightest bit biased. Back in September, my roommates Bridget and JC realized that our (my partner Zach and I’s) corgi mutt Pixel and their pit bull Tank were adopted on the same day! Years apart, but the same adoptaversary nonetheless. So we couldn’t not throw them a joint party to celebrate the occasion. I am … Continue reading

October 3, 2016 // - - - - - - - -

I have so much content drafted on here, so bear with me while I roll it all out! Here’s a project I worked on earlier this summer after I was approached by stylist Thea Acierno. She asked me to add some illustrations to an existing photo set. I chose to incorporate as much cute and colorful imagery as possible — lollipops, unicorns, cupcakes and more. See the results below! I had a lot of fun working on this project. I usually do my digital edits in coffee shops, and while chipping away at this one I was approached a few times by strangers complimenting … Continue reading

LED gown by Diana DiNoble Starkers! Corsetry at Electric Runway. Recycled fibres enable limitless creation in the 3D-printing world

Disclaimer: I originally wrote and published this article while working at MaRS Discovery District. The original article can be found here and has been reposted on for portfolio purposes. Words have been slightly altered to correlate with the date of publication.  In July 2015 I attended Electric Runway, an evening that brought together high-fashion designs with hardware accessories to explore the intersection between fashion and technology. I was blown away by the runway show’s visually captivating elements, like the peacock-inspired outfit by little dada of Site 3 coLaboratory. However, I was most intrigued with the show’s purposeful wearables, including the LED turn-signal gloves by Zackees, the heart rate–monitoring … Continue reading

You know the “How do you know if somebody’s vegan? Don’t worry, they’ll tell you” meme? It’s a dumb joke, but true to a degree. It’s pretty unavoidable while making new friends unless you never want to eat or drink around them (equally unavoidable). I have no problem with people asking why I’m vegan, but sometimes it’s phrased as “You’re vegan to be healthier, right?” and even “If you’re vegan, shouldn’t you be skinnier?”. To avoid any further assumptions: no, I’m not vegan for health reasons. Often times it’s a bonus, but you can make a vegan version of anything! Including … Continue reading

immigration blog post thumbnail HOW I MOVED TO A DIFFERENT COUNTRY IN 3 WEEKS

August 17, 2016 // - - - - - - - - -

I don’t even know where to begin, really. I haven’t published anything on here in a couple weeks, which at first glance probably looks lazy. But considering I’ve packed up my life and moved to a different country on a whim, it’s not that bad. I moved to Los Angeles at the beginning of August. I accepted a job offer, gave two weeks notice at my office, trained my replacement, got out of my lease, sold/tossed/Bunz traded most of my belongings, moved out of my apartment, prepared a *lot* of paperwork, booked a one-way plane ticket, threw a going away party, got my … Continue reading

village juicery square Bottle Design for Village Juicery

July 26, 2016 // - - - - - - - - - - - - -

Being the token vegan millennial that I am, it’s safe to say that I’m a big fan of cold-pressed juices. I mean, who wouldn’t be? They manage to hide tons of fruits and veggies while still tasting great. I’ve been familiar with Village Juicery for a while now, picking up the occasional bottle at Te Aro whilst in Toronto’s East End and Kupfert & Kim in the Financial District. They’re definitely one of the best juice spots that Toronto has to offer, in my opinion, both with ingredient quality and product range — and I worked at a competing juice bar … Continue reading
