Jesse Wyman


I believe the value of design is a business process that should be established and communicated upon at the early stages of design development.


Jesse Wyman earned a bachelor of interior design (honours) from Algonquin College, in Ottawa, Ont. Growing up, he expressed an interest in design and architecture – through the videogames he played, the art he created, and his curiosity around construction. Through this, he had the opportunity to explore various career options at a very early age. He decided to follow his initial passion – architecture. Following three years in architecture (and obtaining his diploma), he realized that he excelled greatly in the realm of design. Jesse then explored this newfound passion, succeeded, and was employed by an architecture & design firm that admired for many years. Through all these years in school, Jesse learned to be patient, positive, and open-minded – qualities that have allowed him to have a realistic, yet enthusiastic outlook in life and at work.
