What’s your favourite DIALOG project?
Walterdale Bridge is an icon for integrated design. It is functional but artful, and integrated into the everyday experience of those who use it.

Where do you find inspiration?
In the everyday – whether it is something beautiful or particularly functional, or something that could be better designed, we are surrounded by reminders that the little things can make all the difference.

What could turn any bad day into a good day?
A walk with my dog, Steve, can always be depended on to turn a bad day into a good day.

Big ideas – thinking about possibilities beyond boundaries and assumptions about the past, present, and future – is what inspires me and my work.
