What’s your favourite DIALOG project?
The Energy Environment and Experiential Learning (EEEL) Building at the University of Calgary. We worked with a fabulous client and a dedicated design/construction team who shared a unique, collective vision for what an advanced learning environment can be.

What’s one quote you live by?
I strive to strike a balance between “Less is more” and “Less is a bore.”

Where’s your happy place?
My happy place is especially heightened at those “aha moments” in one’s life, where there is a profound sense of awe, insight or discovery.

What gets me motivated is trying to make a difference in the world and seeing those accomplishments through the lens of satisfied building occupants.
