This picture is a bit dated but one of my favorites. Both GSDs are no longer here.
Born and raised in British Columbia, I spent six years at U.B.C. studying Mathematics, Physics, Fine Arts and Architecture (and a lot more stuff). While engaged in my design/build practice in Deep Cove, North Vancouver, I started a Master's of Architecture degree with thesis adviser, Murray Silverstein, one of the authors of "A Pattern Language" then of the University of California, Berkeley. My thesis was different from his group headed by Christopher Alexander in that my partners and I made a whole new set of patterns for each client. Prior to that I had spent a year in Spain with fellow architecture students and a year in Mexico studying painting. I finished off the Architecture degree while working in Kelowna where we lived for 8 years. In 1992, I moved with my family to the Ottawa area.
