Profile

Welcome to my slice of the internet pie! I am a web designer who has been working in the industry since 2007. I began my career as a freelance designer for a local web services agency, AMG Media, working with established brands. During the next several years, I also worked alongside a couple of Vancouver web start-up companies while proudly completing BCIT's Applied Web Development certification program with distinction.

In 2011, I took on a full-time position of web designer at Hop Studios in Vancouver. While at Hop I was able to further develop my skills as a designer but also play a role in managing projects, interacting directly with clients and even some minor web development work. In 2016 I resigned from Hop to pursue personal development and improvement projects.

Outside of design work, I've taken up photography as a hobby and maintain a blog www.vulpe.ca and instagram @adaywithtimothy. Saul Bass & Susan Kare are some of my personal design heroes.
