The inception of The Building Project - I returned to Montreal after a farm internship for my first non-academic year since I was 4. I couldn't find work, so I drew buildings every day until it got too cold to manoeuvre my hands. My time quickly became occupied washing dishes for minimum wage. In the subsequent spring I gave up my room, packed a backpack and my bike onto a bus. In 48 hours I found myself in the blazing heat of Austin, Texas

Austin & New Orleans (2012)
Anything I would say emphatically about either of these cities would probably be an understatement. I was down south for a month in 2012, and while there was offered a second internship at another farm, so I came back to Canada and the leaves were out on the trees. I farmed until Christmas, commuting always past the airport and heaving wistful sighs, and in January decided to escape the opressive cold again.
