My name is Allie, I'm an art director living in Toronto. Nice to meet you! Here are some things that either make me very weird or slightly interesting: I can somewhat play the ukulele, sometimes strangers laugh at me when I'm on stage at comedy clubs, I really like the colour orange, I also enjoy tuna A LOT, which may or may not be connected to the colour orange. My approach to my work is to break things. I’m a bit of a rebel so I like to break a problem apart and figure out how to do the opposite of what's expected. It could be a small thing, like a strange medium, or a big thing like a challenging thought, or maybe even something that’s just plain weird because it makes us laugh. It's probably unconventional for an art director, but my goal isn’t to make something to be its most beautiful, it’s to make something that’s going to make you see or feel something in a slightly different way. Thank you for visiting my site I do hope you enjoy your stay. If you have any questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to contact the hotel concierge.
