Partner / Design
He’s a keen listener, and is known for being able to glean hidden gems of insight from seemingly average conversations. He believes the devil is in the details, and he is not one to compromise quality on any level of any project – big or small.
Always a leader, in design school he was the head of the Website Committee, where he graduated with Honours, with a Bachelor of Design degree from York University and Sheridan College.
Things that make him smile: his daughter Addy, backcountry skiing, and time spent with friends.
