Fun Facts/Hobbies: I love to be outdoors gardening, kayaking, hiking, and bicycling. I’m passionate about the connection between the environment and our health. As a result, I’ve taken meat, and its byproducts, out of my diet, and am enjoying the challenge of making vegan meals.
Do you have a favorite: musician, artist, or sports figure/team? I enjoy jazz music. I felt right at home on a trip to New Orleans, where you walk down the streets and hear jazz being played all around you.
What do you love about design? Design can be a creative form of self-expression. It’s fun to watch the design team come up with a shared vision and work through the design process so that vision is understood and experienced by our clients.
Something people don’t know about you: I grew up living next door to Pete Rose, a famous baseball player for the Cincinnati Reds in the 60’s and 70’s.
