Four questions with…

What is your favourite pastime?
I am currently learning how to do woodworking, experimenting with some custom furniture pieces. When I am not woodworking, I also enjoy gardening. I am currently building up my plant collection, focusing on shaping these plants into bonsai.

Where is your happy place?
My happy place is anywhere in nature. I particularly enjoy trekking through the forest or sitting on a nice boulder staring out into the world beyond. 

What’s your favourite Thinkspace project (to date)?

If you weren’t working in architecture, what would you be doing?
