Andi was born in Canada’s capital, Ottawa. She finished her Bachelor of Interior Design at Algonquin College. Within a month she packed her life up, headed out to Kelowna and started her journey with Sticks + Stones Design Group
Similar to her shoes, Andi loves adding a pop of colour to her designs. She is also a problem solver. Specifically, Andi interprets designs as challenges in which innovative answers are needed to create a more comfortable and beautiful space. Her passion for interior design came with many years of observing her parents flip her childhood home. Andi was transfixed with their use of materials and products to renovate their house into their dream home. However, Andi’s passion for design evolved upon expanding to building biology. While reading cradle to cradle (William McDonough, 2002) her desire to create holistic/sustainable interior environments was born.
Above all, Andi wishes to change the narrative that “buildings were built for humans but were not designed for humans
