Canadian native from Toronto moved to the Netherlands after falling in love with my Dutch wife while teaching sailing in the Bahamas. I have been calling the Netherlands home since 2008 with our dog Moby, our two cats Foxy and Puma.

Incase you are wondering how to pronounce my name its is PY [pie] – ZA [like pizza]. I have experience with UX design, visual design, art direction, advertising, coding, motion design, animation and illustration. The past 3 years I have been workings as a freelancer focusing on art direction and design projects with a focus on branding.

Though I have been working as an art director and design manager at Adidas in the past. My roots are firmly in graphic design and being a senior designer, this is my bedrock where I am able to create. I firmly believe if I am going to guide anyone, I first need to be able to have the experience and know how to do it myself. Also being classically trained in fine arts, I love the art of creating, designing and building. I have a lot of experience in branding, designing brand books, executing the brand books and refining brands. It’s important to set the rules of the brand in stone and then work with clients to refine and evolve it organically over time, but we need to start somewhere. I love what I do, either working individually and especially love what I do collaborating with like minded individuals to create something new and exciting in the world.

If you’d like to have a chat and to find out more, what books I’m been reading please email me
