Favorite space designed in Portland: Currently I’m obsessed with new opportunities in building with lumber so my favorite Portland designed space is Lever Architecture’s Renton Tasting Room.
What gets me excited about design: The most exciting part of designing for me is the beginning when the options are limitless and choices have to be made in order to create a space that best fulfills the program’s purpose. I love to see where those decisions take a design and how they carry it from beginning to the finished project.
Favorite design magazine: Definitely Dwell. I love how they focus on the entire project, architecture, interiors, landscape, everything.
On a typical Saturday you can find me: Either at home working on projects or in my studio. Saturday’s are my favorite day to catch up on work because time has more of a leisure feel so I allow myself to go more in depth on a project.
Interesting fact: I grew up in a town with less than 400 people. My roots encourage me to remember that design is about people and not about objects.
