My passion for design started as a little boy when helping my father and grandfather build homes on Vancouver Island.
I remember helping my father lay carpet and put up walls in new developments in Victoria neighbourhoods. We would sit together and draft blue prints as I learnt the basics of the architecture and design development process. I became so engrained in the love for structure that I knew one day I wanted to be a designer of purpose.
My motivation for design continued in high school where at 18 I won a small block award for my Miami-inspired dream home drafting creation and achieved the highest marks and recognition in my Interior Design class. In September 2013 I began my Interior Design educational journey. I obtained my Interior Design Diploma (D.I.D.) at the Visual College of Art and Design and won the Best in Show at our Graduation Portfolio Show in April 2016
Today I reflect on my progress, my style and my inspirations and I see the designer I’ve become. Through my natural ability to take a blank canvas and create something incredible to my simplistic concrete and wood themed design, I have developed into a highly motivated, engaged and inspired designer ready to take on the interior design and architecture industry and place my name as a design stamp.
Let the next chapter of my journey commence.
