Principal, Architectural Technologist
After the successful completion of the 3 year architectural technology program at algonquin college, I fulfilled a life long dream and moved to western canada. There I worked for two different prefabricated home companies over a span of three years before launching SMPL Design Studio in the spring of 2010. Since the companies inception, we’ve worked on over 300 projects ranging in size from 300 square foot tiny homes, to 10,000 square foot custom modern masterpieces. No project is too big, or too small !!
MMAH Registered Designer, Building Code Specialist (BCIN #19618)
I’ve worked for 25 years in the construction industry – as a labourer, carpenter, contractor, plans examiner, building inspector, energy auditor and historic architectural conservationist. I’m certified as a Building Code Official and Architectural Technologist. I also teach my trade at Algonquin College in Ottawa.
Accounting and Administration; Dip. Corr. Ser. Worker
Book keeping, accounting and administration are key items of any successful company. When not running around chasing our two kids, I’m busy organising Joels box of papers.
Design / Drafting; Dip. Arch. Tech.
With a degree in Urban Planning (2012) and Architectural Technology (2016), in addition to 16 months of coop positions (12 of which were with SMPL), I now work full in the office as the lead drafts person and assistant designer.
Office Manager / Permit Specialist; BSc (Geography)
After completing my BSc in Geography at Laurier University, I worked with the Credit Valley Conservation Authority for 8 years. That experience lead me to this new role with SMPL Design Studio. I manage week to week scheduling of projects in the office, as well as handle all demolition, building, services, site plan, minor variance and conservation permit applications for all projects.
