Dustin has devoted the past 18 years of his life-transforming the manner in which residential/commercial design in Calgary is implemented. He constantly strives to empower the people around him, assisting them in becoming passionate leaders in their communities, and the workplace which is evident in his energetic team at Sliver Custom Design and Finishing. His vision for making a difference in Calgary’s residential/commercial design can be seen in his many spirited, elusive, and prudent designs throughout the city. He credits much of Sliver’s successes to the strength in his business partnership and friendship with Marco. He believes that Sliver has been able to flourish and sustain the constant challenges of economic uncertainty due to the rapport amongst clients and the individuals that make up Sliver. His personable approach is to inspire young, talented designers to not only achieve their passion in design, but also enlighten them to craft a positive experience for each client.

Marco has been actively involved in the residential/commercial industry in Calgary for the past 18 years. Shortly after completing his MBA from the University of Calgary in 2004, he and Dustin started Sliver Custom Design & Finishing. His dedicated approach to seeing project development, from beginning to end, has been crucial in the company’s success. In order for Sliver to continually grow and be committed to our customer excellence he devotes much of his time to the accounting and financial preparation. Furthermore he finds great satisfaction in the construction of on-site millwork/cabinets with Sliver’s outstanding team of carpenters. His inspiration and enthusiasm towards his business comes from the unwavering support he receives from his wife Tamara, and 2 daughters Ava, and Alaina.

Taylor loves that design is ever changing and that she will never stop learning, whether is about a new product or the mechanical systems of a home. She loves to stay ahead of the design trends and has a good eye for discerning what is going to be a timeless design element and what is just a fad. Taylor has a passion for residential design and enjoys the freedom of a new build and the challenge of a renovation project. When Taylor is not at Sliver, you can find her cuddling with her two cats, spending time outdoors, or at one of Calgary’s local breweries!
