I am currently employed by m2 creative management solutions, Inc, a design firm based in Chicago, Illinois. Working as the firm’s Lead Architectural Designer, I am responsible for carrying out design work on a large number of interior design projects as well as managing both employees and schedules.
I believe that the job of an architect is to make the buildings we inhabit beautiful, so that we can be inspired, provoked, awed, challenged and comforted as we make our lives. Architecture should celebrate life and celebrate the people who use it.
