As an architect and artist, I have an innate drive to bring order from chaos, while also embracing the need to dream in order to materialize a meaningful vision. These seemingly opposing skills help my clients to realize projects that thrive.
Together we develop creative programming and design solutions that transform the way people live, work, and experience their surroundings. I help our team 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 see inspired concepts become real world experiences. Team-mates have described me as an empathic listener who thinks flexibly, yet analytically, and a team-member who brings strong instincts, curiosity and clarity to each project.
My hybrid creative and organizational skills place me in the unique position to provide a place-making vision and remain in the process through completion 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 an 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 am a licensed architect in California, an NCIDQ certified interior designer, LEED AP ID&C, and a member of IIDA.
