I have a passion for design and creating space that is able to adapt to the needs of life while respecting the history, culture and environment of place.  I'm looking to be part of a team that is generous in ideas, respect and a little fun.  I want a home where my strengths can contribute and add value, but also where I’m challenged and can grow.
