Michael Plasse-Taylor has been teaching full-time in Ryerson’s School of Interior Design since 1999, prior to which he taught at the University of Manitoba and the International Academy of Art and Design. He graduated with a Masters in Science (Interior Design) from Pratt Institute (1982), and practiced interior design for several years in New York City, Ottawa and Toronto. He has served as the vice-president of the Professional Interior Design Institute of Manitoba, spearheaded a national AIDS fundraiser for the Interior Designers of Canada, and served as a judge for the Association of Interior Designers of Ontario.

In addition to many significant high-end well recognized design projects executed in both the United States and Canada, Prof. Plasse-Taylor is most thrilled to have designed the world’s first bilingual/bicultural (bi/bi) deaf and hearing daycare-SignTalk, located in Winnipeg, Manitoba.
