How did the road lead you to Faulhaber Communications?
All of my previous roles have been indirectly connected to communications. I had the awesome opportunity to live in London, UK for six years while I was studying for my masters where I worked as an editor for ArtSlant London as well as Frieze Art Fair. Working for a large international event has definitely prepped me for the Faulhaber pace!
What is your passion?
My passion is contemporary fine art. I’m the type of person that would spend my weekends perusing new galleries discovering new artists that blow my mind. I get particularly excited by installation art – full immersive work that changes your perspective. Christoph Buchel’s Simply Botiful at the Hauser and Wirth Coppermill space blew me away and I still think about that experience to this day.
When was the last time you tried something new?
My rule of thumb is to try everything! I love an adventure and getting mixed up in new experiences with different people. I’m not a thrill seeker per se; however, I have scaled cliffs, ate haggis, explored ancient pyramids andstayed three nights in Kibera (The 2nd largest slum in the world).The latest, most memorable experience I had was on safari in Nairobi – where I camped with Masai Warriors in the bush for a few days and saw animals most only get the chance to see in the pages of National Geographic.
If you had the opportunity to get a message out to a large group of people what would your message be?
I would broadcast general good thoughts. I’m a firm believer that if you are a relatively good person that does good by everyone, good will come back to you. Other than that, I am an advocate for equality – I think about human rights issues quite a bit. I know it’s a bit of a cliché but I truly want everyone to get along.
When it’s all said and done, will you have said more than you have done?
I hope not! Though I do talk a lot and have loads of stories to tell, I do want to “do” a lot. I think I want what everyone wants, a sense of accomplishment and to have a colourful history where you made a mark in some form or fashion.
Last week, we worked with Klaus Nienkamper II (less formally known as K2) to host legendary design visionary and Moooi Co-Founder, Marcel Wanders, in Toronto for the first time in over ten years. Throughout interviews, a talk at Toronto’s Soho House with Anwar Mekhayech of The Design Agency, a blowout bash at Klaus by Nienkamper, and Hair of the Dog Brunch at the Design Exchange, we pulled our top ten quotes from the creative genius:
1. Look at an object and see if it makes you happy. I look at all things about the object and see if those things make me happy
2. If love was an island, beauty would be its ambassador… There is so much love and fun and beauty to be found in design.
3. It’s hard to choose a favourite work, it’s like asking a mother her favourite child.
4. We play with the identity of materials to see if they can become something else. Fantasy is a word that really resonances. It is a word that is the essence of design but no one talks about!
5. We are a result of billions of small mistakes. Big ideas create big problems. Small ideas create solutions.
6. I want to buy what I sell. I want to sit on both sides of the table.
7. There’s nothing that grows more old than the new. And so I’ve always implanted something from the past in my work.
8. I want to make things people will want to keep forever.
9. I try to evaluate my success in the hearts and heads of my audience.
10. If there is something I want to do before I die. I am going to do it before I die.

TFI New Labels last night was a glamorous success and we wanted to share Faulhaber’s favourite looks:

Today we are inspired by information share.
“Advice is subjective. But, by passing on advice in a creative way, it is possible to create something that lasts, that people will want to live with and which can let the advice sink in slowly and help out later on.”
We have put together our finds for moms-on-the-go! Help mom celebrate the spring season with bright hues and contemporary furniture.
