Watching a space come to life is one of the most rewarding things I have ever experienced. There is a point in the construction process that is nostalgic for me; I grew up around carpentry, and from a young age I knew architecture would shape my life. We spend a great deal of time indoors, so it is important to be careful with the way we design and construct spaces. My role is help to my team move the production process along from design development, to contract documents, all the way through construction. I believe in transparency and being your truest self both inside and outside of the office, as it creates an honest environment for everyone. I look at every project as a giant three-dimensional puzzle. Not only does this make things fun and challenging, but it also helps me understand the importance of collaboration and communication with the project team as we make it through each stage of the architectural process.
