Two things come to mind; crunching formula's in the lab or hitting badminton birdies on the court with Tom.

I am having loads of fun and lots of laughs, and working hard at DECIEM.

Director of Supplier Relationships

I am an Italian native who has always had a great passion for travelling and exploring new cultures. My favourite destinations include London, New York City and, of course, Toronto. I am super curious about everything and anything, and really like to learn new things - one would not be surprised to know that I read random Wikipedia articles anytime I can. When I was a kid, my dream was to become a banker… Unfortunately I have realized this might never happen (sigh!), so I now wish to open a café instead. I am an absolute foodie – I spend hours cooking and love watching cookery programmes just as much as I like eating out and discovering new restaurants. Other passions of mine are biking, foreign languages, architecture, design and… hazelnut gelato!

You may find the things that I do strange, but I'm not weird at all, I'm just a designer! Just to name a few things, I'm that person who stops midway while walking through a mall to feel the material of store signage. I also buy products only to keep the packaging. I'm a hoarder with collections of catalogues under my bed. I even go as far as checking my pantone swatches before going clothes shopping. Can you blame me? I want to make sure my shirt and socks match!

Plant Director

I never liked taking the easy route because I believe that hard work produces the best results. I love challenges, that’s why I have never been happy with anything I've accomplished. In life, what you really want will never come easy. I get bored easily from following a routine; except when it comes to food and destroying myself at the gym. I'm a very cozy person, and my biggest happiness is when I'm at home. I love all animals, and my favorites are elephants and camels. If I could be an animal, I would choose to be a camel.

Hopped across the pond from London, England for a true Canadian experience…EH! Born and bred in the city of London, I am a true city boy at heart. You can take the boy out of the city but not the city out of the boy. I’m excited to make Toronto my new playground! A normal graphic design day for me consists of designing. Re-designing. Bang head against wall. Edit. Re-edit and edit some more, but I wouldn’t change a thing. In graphic design no day is the same. I wonder what tomorrow will bring...

Director of Web Technology

A geek at heart and an artist by trade. Or vice versa.
As a kid I loved playing with gizmos. And with cardboard boxes. I would spend my afternoons creating complicated machines – which I called clocks – using rope, broken wind up toys and lots of boxes. I loved the endless possible ways to connect them and the steam-punk aesthetics of the finished contraption. My frustrated parents, tripping over my living room sized creations, used to point out it was a waste of money to buy me toys if I just wanted to play with their boxes. Then they had a great idea: they bought me a Lego set. Best present ever, including the awesome box it came in. Nowadays I play with gizmos for a living. And with cardboard boxes.

Now, this is a story all about how
My life got flipped-turned upside down
And I'd like to take a minute
Just sit right there
I'll tell you how I became the HOL at a place called Deciem.

In west Nottinghamshire born and raised
On the football pitch was where I spent most of my days
Chillin' out maxin' relaxin' all cool
And all shootin some football outside of the school
When a couple of friends shouted "hey what's up Ricks"
Would you like to work at Deciem as the Head of Logistics
It took one little night and my mom said carpe diem
I said "I'm movin' to join a family at a place called Deciem"

I whistled for a cab and when it came near
The license plate said abnormal with dice in the mirror
If anything I could say that this cab was fun
But I thought 'Nah, forget it' - "Yo, holmes to Deciem"

I pulled up to Unit Four about 7 or 8
And I yelled to the cabbie "Yo holmes smell ya later"
I looked at my family
I could finally see them
And sit on my seat as the HOL of Deciem.

While life is what’s keeping me grounded, the heart is where I’m at home.

I naturally gravitate towards insightful conversations where learning is a constant. Apart from books, I tend to educate myself that way.

Inspired by the people I love and care about, I also make my own recipes whenever I feel creative ( some have become house favourites to this day! ). Not only does cooking create a special bond within my family, I actually find it liberating to discover something new, and a way to express my affection.

Through hard work, I aim to be a successful entrepreneur one day.

Tiny girl with a big smile and even bigger dreams! I have three weaknesses (OR STRENGTHS), beauty, nature and dessert. When I am outdoors my head’s usually up in the trees spotting a bird, or sniffing the lilacs in a stranger’s garden. I love mixing stuff together to find new and magical things, I was mixing up polymer nanocomposites a while ago, now I am mixing cosmetics, and I love mixing up ingredients in the kitchen too (total foodie, YES!). You might find me on my desk talking to myself, scrunching my face all weird and funny. That’s ok, I’m probably concentrating with a lot of heart and mind.

Life needs to be fun and adventurous, so taking risks, and always choosing the more challenging option is my number 1 rule!

After committing aggressively to high-level sports, music production, two business degrees (B. Comm, M.B.A.), and my professional career, it was time for a different challenge.

There was constantly a lurking desire to be part of a very dynamic team where I can truly be myself while experiencing exciting new opportunities everyday.

Thanks to a perfectly-timed twist of fate, DECIEM and I have found each other, and believe you me, it’s going to be just great!

I’m a skincare enthusiast and I often spend my free time watching YouTube videos about makeup and skincare. When I’m not doing the above mentioned, you would probably find me lounging with one of my two cats.

Ambassador

A mediator, a black sheep, an empath, a keeper of the light, a Morrissey fanatic, a modern day Joan of arc, a campaigner, a believer in magic, a lover of perspective. I root for the underdog. Individuality is everything to me. You can find me people watching in awe on a crowded subway, with my journal in hand or dancing my heart away with my pals at a groovy 80s night spot. I live to leave my mark on this world, and in return, this world is leaving its mark on me.

Peers and colleagues recognize me as a highly motivated and personable individual with a strong work ethic. In an extension of my competitive drive, I believe that deliverables must reflect my best efforts, as they are a representation of my character. I contribute strong analytical skills and the strong leadership abilities to each project I work on. In addition, I thrive in a group setting and value the diverse views and problem-solving methods of my team members. My clear and concise communication improves project efficiency and allows me to form strong and lasting relationships with colleagues. I also like to rock climb and play tennis.
