I began working as an Academic Expert with Athabasca University in 2016 and am currently leading two virtual design studios. I am the Principal of Laptiste Architecture a design studio based in Toronto. After receiving my Master’s Degree in Architecture from McGill University, I worked as a Project Architect on a wide scale of projects including several facilities with construction values over $100 million. With a focus on community, sport and recreational facilities, I also have experience ranging from residential to commercial and industrial to institutional. In addition to my professional experience designing and managing projects, I have worked with non-profit organizations in the planning of community centres and in the provision and management of affordable housing. I am very motivated to help create strong communities through environmentally and socially sustainable spaces.
