My professional path began with the journey of becoming an architect. I was lucky enough to attend one of Canada’s greatest design institutions, the University of Waterloo School of Architecture. This path gave me a breadth of experiences that would change me forever. The path to becoming an architect is taxing, inspiring and requires significant sacrifice. I was able to work in various high profile design firms, both in North America, (Toronto and Boston) and in Europe (Paris, France). I got to understand how culture is formed, both academically and in praxis.
