+ “Form follows function” – Louis Sullivan
= Total design
My role as a designer is to practice successful design solutions for the interior environment with concern for human factors and behaviors. It is my objective to create interior spaces that will keep purpose, function, and people in mind, while sustaining our environment.
I will strive to implement these goals through interiors standards as it pertains to current trends such as Leadership in Energy & Environmental Design, American Disabilities Act, and International Building Code guidelines within my career.
