About 

My interests vary between landscape infrastructure & urban systems, public spaces, design theory, and context-driven architecture. I am passionate about building positive natural connections in urban settings. Meaningful sense of place is an important human need.

Employment 

Public Work, Toronto, ON, CA, Designer

The practice of PUBLIC WORK begins with the understanding that every project—public or private—has a responsibility to improve the quality and experience of public life in the city.

Using landscape as our primary medium, our projects aim to enhance the often hidden qualities of a site to produce a transformed experience of even the most familiar places.

Sinai Landschaftsarchitekten, Berlin, DE, Architect | Landscape Architect

Sinai is an award-winning firm with a focus on transforming difficult post-war & post-Soviet urban spaces, industrial remediation, large-scale masterplans and sustainable waterfront development.

Hardly any profession is so characterized by the living urban environment as landscape architecture. This raises a special responsibility for each site, which is subject to change. No organization, whether good or bad, ambitious or not, has no meaning and no effect. Each design has thus willingly or unwillingly an ideational content.

The conscious analysis of the interplay of form and content of a project is the focus of the work of Sinai.

Tekton Arkitekten, Amsterdam, NL, Intern Architect

We consider designing spaces as a dualistic action. On one hand it’s about separating on the other about connecting. To dissolve this dualism we prefer to create elements which flow over into each other. Landscape becomes Building, Building Becomes Landscape is a sentence of some of our designs that describes our company belief. We believe that the way a building works is close to nature. A design should have a natural flow.
