I started writing for Trend Hunter as an opportunity to discover the contemporary designers I'd learned little about in my history-based degree at the University of Toronto. By my third article I was hooked and now the rest is history!
I'm a lover of graphic, furniture and industrial design, of architecture and painting. I feel fortunate to have grown up around my beloved Toronto and to have lived in Canberra and Melbourne, Australia, where there's so much scrumptious creative inspiration around every corner.
