Overview

Minimum Hourly Rate $30

Designing maps is my full time job. Making maps is what I wanted to do since I was 10 years old. My love for my work means that I fully put my heart into every map I make.

In the year 2000 I graduated from Emily Carr University of Art in Vancouver, Canada with a Bachelor's degree in Fine Art. Upon graduation I moved to Thailand. For the last 15 years I have split my life between Thailand and my birthplace of Bellingham, WA USA.

Service Description

My full time work is making maps. I mostly create wall maps, locator maps, iPad app maps, maps for books, and oversize artistic maps for education and tourism. Before I was able to make a living making only maps I worked 10 years as a lead graphic artist/art director designing books, magazines, websites, advertising, logos and all other manner of printed/electronic graphic design works for major publishers in Bangkok and the United States.

I have an experts knowledge of, and work primarily with Adobe Photoshop, Adobe Illustrator, Adobe InDesign and Adobe Dreamweaver to complete the work that I take on.

See my full portfolio to get a better idea of who I am (see link to my website in this profile). My forte lies with organizing large amounts of information into something beautiful...I really love seeing the chaos of so many pieces coming together into something that is coherent and attractive to the eye.
