Describe your design style in 3 words: Progressive, Refined, Strategic
My design icon: Richard Meier
Who would you most like to collaborate with on a project? My Client.
Fill in the blank, no space is complete without: the client.
What project are you most proud of? I am proud of all of my projects. No single one jumps to the front BUT I must say I have the most satisfaction with the low budget projects that challenge us to be most creative and strategic in our design.
What are your must read design blogs? DesignWire, Interior Design
Why Interior Design? This is a profession that combines creativity, innovation, functionality, and the pushing of boundaries through knowledge, collaboration and strategic thinking resulting in environments for our clients that exceed their expectations and understanding of our profession.
How would you define your personal style? Thoughtful, detailed, not afraid.
How did you convince your parents you wanted to be an Interior Designer? My father was an engineer and my mother a librarian – both supporters of the arts & culture. I started out studying architecture, but upon graduating transitioned to interior design for commercial interiors loving the challenges.
3 things I can’t live without: Barolo, trace paper, blackberry/smart phone
Why IIDA? I started out with IIDA to meet people & network. Over the past 10 years IIDA has given me a platform to give back to the industry through legislation, mentoring, networking, etc (and leading by example)
"I AM IIDA because I’m professional, I want to advance the profession and I am always looking for knowledge.”
