Who, me?

Gee, thanks for stopping by. My name's Rachel, but you can call me Rae. It really is nice to e-meet you. I'm a passionate creative happily based in Hamilton, Ontario. I've lived with a creative spark in my fingertips since before I could walk; and while I'm sure you've heard that before, it wouldn't take you long scrolling through any archives of my life to realize that creating may be my purpose.

I talk a lot about purpose. I believe that the little things that excite our day to day are not random, nor are they secondary to a "bigger picture." It's these exact little things, like gushing over warm light peeking through my blinds that drives the detail and action behind all of my work. Over the years this has included music, dance, art, photography and writing. I attended McMaster University for Communications and discovered along the way a deep passion for the environment, nature and sustainability. This led to completing a specialized minor in Sustainability.

I'm a lover of Instagram dogs, books with inscriptions and catching the sun rise and set every day. A tree hugger, who always has room for movie theatre popcorn and believes with all her heart in the power of community. I’m inspired by both the old and new as I’m often found thinking of new ways to use technology, researching the latest camera releases and obsessing over Black Mirror episodes… all while vintage polaroids develop in my back pocket. I LOVE music and worked for many years in campus radio. I’ll often be caught shamelessly bursting into 80s jam breaks in my living room while I edit, or catching local indie band release shows. Travel is one of my favourite talking points, so I would love to hear if you’ve been somewhere cool or if we can share stories about our experiences.

If you’re interested in getting together for a coffee and chatting about our passions, you betcha I can make some time. Get in touch!
