Personal Style

Current Personal Dream Design:
Changes every 6 months – right now, Calcutta matte marble countertop - grey veining with hints of rust or green colour, matte finish; brass finishes, hints of black (on glass doors), painted whites and either walnut or aqua green stain

Happy this fad is over:
Golden oak; glazed, painted French country look (feels heavy – I enjoy designing with those details, but the finished result isn’t my favourite)

Hobbies

Current Hobbies:
Softball, hockey with my boys, snowboarding, fishing at the cottage, walking with my wife and daughter and dog

Hobbies I'd Like To Resurface:
Working out at the gym, cross-fit, whatever my kids are enjoying

Favourite Meal

To Cook:
Lamb chops seared on the BBQ and grilled, lightly grilled asparagus, (paired with a glass of red wine)

Cooking Facts:
Won a prize one for cooking 5 cornish hens with mango and thyme in an outdoor dutch oven
