  I have 15 years working in various design capacities, from small residential renovations to large scale institutional projects from schools to hospitals. I specialize in residential buildouts but also have significant involvement in detailing larger projects and experience in commercial interior design. These projects are now spread all across the U.S. 

I also feel it is very important that continuous real-world experience be accompanied by teaching and researching design to remain relevant in private practice, but also to make connections with colleges in our field as well as making connections with the next generation of designers as they strive to real world experiences.
