    • I love the collaborative process of developing design solutions, for a wide variety of owners from concept to fruition. I take pride in my work, and especially enjoy creating neighbourhoods for families to live.

    • Maintaining an active lifestyle is important to me as well as something that I enjoy. In addition to year-round outdoor activities I also enjoy yoga, cooking, and reading. One of my life goals is to learn how to sail.
