For Veterans Week 2003, the Department of National Defence wanted to put together a photo slideshow on a CD-ROM format. The final CD-ROM slideshow was played on a loop at various DND locations and remembrance events.
I authored the photo slideshow on a CD-ROM auto-play format, and designed the label artwork for the CD.
This slideshow was designed to illustrate the strain on Canadian Forces personnel due to lack of effective strength, and the need to invest in sustainable troop levels. It was presented to the Minister of National Defence, as well as senior Defence department management and other top level government officials.
thesetunes.com / thesetunes.ca was online from February 2001 until March 2003, and during its operation was one of Canada’s leading online music resources – providing independent artists a showcase and a chance to promote their music. It was also a great information resource for music fans, to find out what’s happening in their community. Thesetunes organized and sponsored the Monntreal Fringe Festival’s music performances in 2001 and 2002, including a Battle of the Bands competition. We also hosted many concerts in and around Montreal in those years.
As a founding partner of and webmaster for the site, I was responsible for designing the site from the ground up, developing the logos and the look and feel of the site. I also shot video from some of the shows that we organized and added them to the site.

This intranet site was created in order to deal with the large amount of requests for badges and other visual identifiers within the Department of National Defence. A lot of work went into the site, from scanning in print versions of the crests, to touching them up in Photoshop, and even recreating some altogether from scratch with Adobe Illustrator!
This is my personal home page, and showcases my thoughts and artistic works.
