Michael is drawn to the transformative nature of design and how architecture can elevate the experiences of people.

With an eye for details and specifications, he especially enjoys considering the materiality of architecture from the human scale. A Project Lead and Design Lead, Michael manages teams on large, multi-phase complex projects. He has experience in the mixed-use, residential and retail markets and guiding projects across all phases from planning and schematic design through to construction. Michael was the Project Lead for the residential tower and retail leasing coordination of the Yonge Sheppard Centre, one of Toronto’s largest ongoing mixed-use redevelopments. He is also currently leading the design for Dufferin Grove Village, which builds on the Dufferin Mall site, as well as Brimley Block C, part of the Scarborough Town Centre Master Plan.
