HOW CAN BE PEOPLE BEST SUPPORT YOU + THE WORK THAT YOU DO?
if we are talking straight to the source, it's Jungle's instagram. recently I have been playing around with it in hopes that people will get to see how I see the world + what in it inspires me. I am so grateful to have a company that works in ways which parallel what I am in school to do. so, whether you want to talk plants, design, plant-design (ha), or you just want to chat about something that peaked your intrigue, reach out to me. I am always down for a chat.
IF YOU COULD PAINT A VISION FOR CALGARY'S FUTURE, WHAT WOULD IT LOOK LIKE?
without getting too political, I just want to say that change is both good + healthy. do not be afraid of what we don't know or haven't seen yet. jump in + try something new. from architecture to political climates, Calgary has a long history of repeating itself. can we challenge the status quo + build a place that pulses with the arts, education + a vibrancy kin to our larger neighbouring cities? Calgary is a dynamic city bursting with unique + talented individuals. how can we tap into that? how can we take advantage of this potential?
WHAT IS YOUR FAVOURITE CALGARY RESOURCE + WHY?
the people. this small town, big city is bustling with explorers, thinkers, creators + doers. since moving back here I have + continue to meet some of the most incredible people. they have encouraged me to [literally + figuratively] climb, run, bike, canoe, hike, fish, learn, jump, shake, groove, laugh, get lost, fail + move through this life. one of those special someones happens to be the reason I am here talking to you. the more we connect + realize peoples' potential, the more power we have to do.
WHAT IS YOUR FAVOURITE LOCAL BUSINESS + WHY?
run by an extremely small ship [more like an canoe] of people who work their tushes off to create a dynamic experience for all types of people in the city. for the entire five days, when all their hard work comes to light, they provide is with an unforgettable + enriching cultural experience that makes us come alive. this one-of-a-kind business sees to it that dreams come true + memorable experiences are had. + as they do, watch as the people bike, dance, laugh + connect. I could go on + on.
