Where I Grew Up. Haida Gwaii, archipelago of islands off the coast of BC
Untouched by glaciers and gnarled by weather, the islands have a unique and mysterious look and feel to them. It is truly a breathtaking place to visit. Growing up there I took a lot of it for granted, but since leaving in 1992 and returning 18 years later, I was struck by how much the soul of the islands was ingrained in me. It has affected how I design, how I relate to people, and most importantly fostered my love of raw nature and it's effect on the human experience.
