What is your favorite IIDA event and why?: I love Design Crawl!! To see the finished space after the hard work is inspiring.
What is your favorite product/service offered by your company and why?: Right now it’s Live Circuit—not just because it’s new. It has great movement and has an option to add a jolt of color.
What aspect of your company are you most proud of and why?: I am proud of Milliken’s commitment to design and development. I feel we have beautiful products. But, the fact that we can change how a space feels with the cushion backing always makes me proud.
What value do you see in being an IIDA Oregon Chapter Annual Sponsor?: IIDA provides so many great events to bring together all who work in commercial design. Not only do I find personal growth attending these, I enjoy the opportunity to see my clients on a more casual setting.
What impact do you see the IIDA Oregon Chapter having on the A&D community in Oregon?: IIDA Oregon has a unique opportunity to education and bring together the A&D community. We are all stronger as a group.
On a typical Saturday where can we find you?: There’s a good chance I’ll be repainting another room in my house. I LOVE color. My last project was my parent’s living room. I aggressively convinced my mom to paint the room a color called Borrowed Light. It looks beautiful, if I don’t say so myself.
