I'm a graduate of the University of Waterloo's School of Architecture where I have learned to appreciate buildings and people in a spatial way. Here are a few excerpts from my studies both in academic and applied real world opportunities.
Graphics for VeloCity
I had the opportunity to work on some fun marketing material for VeloCity, an incubator for uWaterloo startups.
With less than 24 hours to pull this off, I had an epiphany and decided to design and build a tin can telephones costume. The rest is history, you can delve into the process and read about it here.
A desk that has the sculptural grace to stand alone and the modular features to animate large office spaces. Made out of reclaimed wood, & kept simple with trestles, this design was really to do! Design work for this project was done during my time @knotordinary
A Staycation Home Steps from the City
Taking an existing home and throwing in qualities of modern sustainable living has transformed this lake front living dwelling. Design work for this project was done during my time @whitingdesign
A New Cafe for Seven Shores
This new pavilion extends the energy and atmosphere from the interiors right to the boulevard. A great place for people watching in the warmer season. Design work for this project was done during my time @whitingdesign
A great addition to a well visited cottage, completely open to the elements, this pavilion's focus is primitive shelter and honest architecture. Design work for this project was done during my time @whitingdesign
What would you do with an abandoned alley? Shipping containers is one way to inhabit the space, bringing dwellings into the urban fabric. Design work for this project was done during my time @whitingdesign
A few marketing concepts for unique local foodie events. Design work for this project was done during my time @whitingdesign
King Street Trio Restaurant

A Framing Model
This framing model proved to be a lesson in understanding wood frame construction.
Lusthaus: A Dining Pavilion
The challenge here was to use simple accessible materials to design and construct a life size dining pavilion for the outdoors that would seat 8 and redefine what it means to dine within the landscape.
Thunderbay Waterfront Redevelopment
A design response to the current state of Thunderbay's waterfront, this proposal speak so the reinvigorating spaces that have been lost in translation. The focus was to encourage pedestrian friendly nodes of gathering to support the diverse activities of Thunderbay year round.
Sketches from Italy
Travels through the North of South of Italy encouraged quick spatial studies of the urban armature.
A Chair for Audrey Hepburn
A structural study of static forces, this chair speaks to the busy lifestyle of Audrey Hepburn and depicts the use of a found object paired with the styles from the art deco era.

A museum proposal that is integrated to the metropolis of Rome while honouring its history and future.
