By day I work in the Kasian office designing the offices, restaurants, hotels, schools and airports that you walk through, interact with and enjoy. By day I use AutoCAD, SketchUp, Revit, the internet and Photoshop to sketch and create spaces for you to explore. But, by night I am just like almost everyone else, snuggled up at home tight in my bed with heat, electricity, food and a roof. On weekends I can now explore sharing the journey to finish putting a roof over a familys head so they too can enjoy the schools, hospitals, stores and exciting projects that I spent all week working on.
Food or Hunger
With Habitat for Humanity I get a hands on approach to being an Interior Designer. It may not be as glamorous as the office job but it is fulfilling to be able to meet and work with the families who need a little help. Working with a team of professionals who are all in it for the right reasons can be the best start to a new work week. The last 2 weekends have been a great opportunity helping Edmonton’s chapter of Habitat for Humanity complete one more home for one more family.
While the recession is booming around the world I choose now to be the time to come out strong. I have officially taken up residence in Edmonton Alberta and am now happily working for Kasian Architecture and Interior Design. I have more time to focus on being the best at my job and learn from all my new surroundings but I also have the time to pick up on things I need to blossom my career; my LEED exam, go to trade shows, read all the design magazines, explore the net and most importantly blog. It’s a new year in a new province with a couple new perspectives and I am ready to get it all together. I hope you enjoy what is to come and please share your feedback.
