I grew up
In a couple of places, but Nova Scotia is home for me.
Master or Architecture, Dalhousie University
Bachelor of Environmental Design Studies, Dalhousie University
Bachelor of Science, Biology, Carleton University
BEDs Graduation with Distinction, Graduate Scholarship for Academic Performance
I chose Measured for their unique approach to design; each project is seen as an opportunity to try something different. The answer often stems from the site, the client, and curiosity -which I find exciting.
Earliest architectural memory
Helping my Dad build a greenhouse with antique windows.
The coast. The blurred line between land and sea always amazes me.
Materials that excite me
Natural materials – clay, wood, etc. I especially love when evidence of how an object or material was shaped is tangible.
Preferred era in architecture
I love when something arises from place, and fits just so. Vernacular architecture is my favourite – not necessarily an era I suppose.
I chose Vancouver because
Of the ocean and mountains.
I’m inspired by
Nature and light/shadow.
Ball point or felt tip?
Back to school shopping was always my favourite – I loved getting new pens. Rollerball is my go-to.
When I’m not working you can find me
Outside exploring this new city. Or cooking.
At happy hour I order
You can never go wrong with a good glass of wine.
I’m my best self when/at
When near the ocean. Love a good foggy walk on the beach.
