What’s your favourite DIALOG project?
The Calgary Cancer Centre. The project best exemplifies the ability of an integrated design team to collaborate on a large scale and make a significant impact of the health and wellbeing of society through the design of a sustainable and healthy built environment. Being fortunate enough to play a small role in such a strong team of great people is a humbling and gratifying experience.

What’s one item you won’t leave home without?
A pen and something to write on. In a fast-paced technology focused world, writing helps slow things down, clarify thoughts, and add creativity to problem solving. You’re not bounded by any rules on a piece of paper.

Where’s your happy place?
Quiet early mornings with a cup of coffee.
