Where were you raised? Where have you lived?
I spent most of my first 9 years (though born in Illinois) living in Kennesaw Georgia. Since then I have hopped around the NW Suburbs of Illinois.
How did you get into your current career?
Spatial design is a jigsaw puzzle, and it’s a new challenge each time. Also, I have always been interested in the psychological effects space can have on its users. People spend more waking time (or at least did) in the office than in their own homes. I was interested in the impact I could have in making those hours for comfortable, productive, and enjoyable.
What are three things still left on your bucket list?
South America, Australia, and Antarctica. They are the only continents I have not yet been.
What was your favorite toy as a kid?
Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles. Also, Barbie’s Dreamhouse. I never cared much for the dolls, but I space planned the hell out of that house!
The most inspiring part of my role is…
Helping to grow people and provide them with rich experiences.
Winter or summer?
