My passion started in second grade. My dad is a roofer and he would take me to work on the weekends. I would walk the site, picking up scrap materials then I’d sit down with his old hammer and handful of nails and I’d try to mimic what was being built — asking questions along the way. From that early exposure to design, my curiosity grew, and I’ve never stopped asking questions. Today, as I listen to clients’ needs, I’m still asking questions to keep the dialogue going and dig deep to create what they envision for their new space.
