I've completed four home renovations - three in Toronto and one in Ottawa. Each home dates back to the early 1900s and the finished homes emphasized original features blended with contemporary convenience.
Bali Villas (Indonesia)
Over five years while living in Bali I completed two home renovations and one complete design-build. Each home features custom-designed furniture, locally sourced materials and craftsmanship, and a strong connection to the great outdoors.
Soho Loft (Manhattan)
I purchased two small units in a 1950’s Civil War-era armory building in Soho, which I combined into one 900 sq foot loft. I stripped down ceilings and beams to expose the original wood and added custom-built tall skinny kitchen cabinets that I copied from an apartment years before when living in Montreal.
Jamari Cafe (Canada)
I transformed an old brewery into a warm and friendly cafe in downtown Ottawa. Features included platform seating (to avoid chairs) and furniture I imported from Bali. @jamariespressohouse
Movement & Meditation Studio (Canada)
This 850 square foot studio had tatami mats, a barefoot wood climbing wall, and a beautiful bird mural by a local Ottawa artist. With a large storage closet, we were able to quickly transform the space from a simple meditation and yoga studio to a full-on obstacle course for natural movement and play. @mettamoves

How We'll Work Together
For 2020 and 2021 most work will be done remotely, when possible.
We start with a free Zoom call for 30 minutes. We will review your needs, your budget, your timeline, and establish if we are a good match to work together.
We sign a mutually agreed upon contract with dates and price-shake hands (or tap elbows) and begin our journey together.
