As a versatile, multi-dimensional thinker, I have developed the ability to join together creativity, inspiration and empathy to craft innovative solutions to problems. With much design thinking experience, I have adopted a human-centred design process which consistently produces high quality products, systems, and technology.

I grew up in a small Southern Ontario farming community chasing foxes and pheasants, pondering the vastness of the universe, and marvelling at human flight. I have an inclination towards knowledge, scientific exploration, and everything visual, probably as a result of building, dismantling, and closely observing the details of everything I could get my hands on in my formative years. A psychologist once told me, "You have the highest right brain test scores we've ever seen (93rd percentile)", but I've been mindful of balancing my hemispheres and ignoring the ego ever since. Eckhart Tolle's book 'A New Earth' made such an impact on me that I continually remind myself to live in the present moment - I started a 3D design and visualization company which integrates the same philosophy: NU-URTH DESIGN.
