Did you always want to be an interior designer? How did you get started?
While there were early markers that a career in Interior Design might be an option, it really wasn’t something I had considered because I didn’t even know it existed. At a very young age I was passionate about the visual arts and liked to manipulate space through the many re-designs of my childhood bedroom. Frankly, I had never heard of Interior Design and it wasn’t until I spent a significant portion of time researching potential careers in my second year of post secondary education. I found a degree program offered in Calgary, Alberta and thought it would be make the best use of all of my strengths. At the age of 20 I announced to my parents I was moving cities and the rest is history.
