He joined Empire Kitchen and Bath (formerly known as Kitchen Space) in Vancouver and designed high-end kitchens for local Vancouverites. Then he moved on to Chernoff Thompson Architects in 2004 and became a registered Intern Architect with the AIBC (Architectural Institute of British Columbia) where he gained his local core knowledge and understanding of the local Canadian architectural and construction profession. He worked on various project types from single family residential, sports complexes, laboratory buildings, schools and various tenant improvement projects during his tenure. He then joined Zeidler Partnership Architects in 2006 and was exposed to multi-family and high rise buildings which strengthened his specialization in residential design.
