Four questions with…

What is your favourite pastime?
Being outside! Skiing, mountain biking, camping, watching the water, any and all of it.

Binge-watching a show / series, or read a good book?
Will always recommend reading the Wheel of Time series. The show is ok, but deviates from the books too much for a true enthusiast.

What destination is on your travel bucket list?
Japan, Brazil, and the Arctic Circle.

What type of architecture / architect or design work inspires you?
Spaces that work for the occupants, plus spaces that show off construction materials and are well thought out and detailed.
