Professional Experience
I help companies position themselves for SUCCESS. Then create branding, advertising, and marketing materials that tell their stories and set them apart. Sound like something you need?


► You consider yourself a market leader but retailers & customers think of you as second-rate.
► Whenever launch a new SKU, retailers want to put it in place of one they were buying before.
► Customers confuse your brand with another one. (Or worse yet, ignore you completely).


As Sr Designer with Nature’s Path Foods, my work* helped them experience a 700% INCREASE IN SALES! (about $50M to well over $350M)

With a potential Costco deal in the works, InnoFoods hired me to improve their brand and packaging. A few months after the relaunch, their Coconut Love product is selling briskly in Costco Canada, Costco USA, Costco Australia and dozens of other Canadian retailers!

Beaver Buzz Energy Drink hired me to help with their packaging and branding also. Within six months, the brand achieved nationwide distribution and continues to grow today!

Are you ready for YOUR food company to experience this sort of growth? Then please reach out. I'd love to help! Expertise in food packaging and marketing is just a click away!
