I remember once in Montreal, he asked me if we could do a cheesy photo-shoot in the hotel room. Little did I know we’d be playing like 12 year old’s in his backyard with coloured smoke bombs all these years later.

Tis the season to be thankful. So yes. I’m pretty thankful for March and his time throughout the years in helping me photograph a lot of what you see on here.
I hope all of you were surrounded by some sort of smoke-screen which blocked out all the current stress and bullshit of your life this weekend. I ate too much, drank too much, laughed and loved, danced and sang wayyy to much. I suppose it was well deserved. #thanks

Studio Move


My recent move back to Toronto has forced me to move my studio yet again. Moving always makes me feel like I should burn everything and start over, anyone else feel the same? AnY_wAyS* Since all the boring stuff is over, (except signing up for internet wifi WHICH we have not got around to aka I am currently stealing someone’s internet connection –  SORRY) PS- Why isn’t the internet free yet?
Wow I seriously lost my train of thought– !
HERE is my attempt to decorate my apartment studio. That is all I really wanted to say. There’s lots more to do around here. I put up two shelves today and I should probbbaabbbly receive an award for it because I had to install anchors in the walls with heavy duty screws and stuff. It was intense.
I can basically build a whole house now you guys.

Meanwhile, I finished a painting commission this week which felt extremely rewarding and a few more projects are on the way. I also am lucky enough to attend a wedding this weekend along with thanksgiving so pretty much I just came here to brag about how awesome my week is looking and how I am an architect.

OK BYE. Anyone come across some new/cool/unheard/underrated music lately? I have lost all sources of discovering new music and I’m a little worried.
