As an architect and artist, I lead design teams through the strategy, creation and delivery of interior architecture and experience design. Together we develop creative solutions that transform the way people live, work, and experience their surroundings. I envision the big picture, synthesize concepts, and translate them into frameworks that strengthen culture, brand and meaning in our daily lives.
I thrive on collaborating with interdisciplinary teams to think outside the box and to see inspired concepts become real world experiences. Team-mates have described me as a good listener, and a flexible, yet analytical thinker with strong instincts, curiosity and empathy.
My hybrid creative and organizational skills place me in a unique position to provide the big vision yet remain in the process to ensure our team’s intent carries through to the delivered outcome-whether it be a new headquarters, art installation or workplace design strategy.
The art of listening and creating a safe space for healthy collaboration are important to me. I enjoy the challenge of simplifying a team’s many ideas and conflicting opinions into a unified purpose and easy-to-understand concept for us all to build upon.
I have had the honor of working on award-winning projects with clients who are leaders in their industries, passionate about what they do, and who strive to improve our world on a global scale. They include Stanford University, University of San Francisco, Seattle Children’s Research Institute, Genentech, Singapore Changi Airport and even the beloved, late Bay Area Feng Shui master, Liu Ming.
I graduated from the University of Florida School of Architecture and am a licensed architect in California, an NCIDQ certified interior designer, LEED AP ID&C, and a member of IIDA.
