arcDESIGN is a team of design leaders and innovators.
“I approach each project like a puzzle, fitting each client’s needs within the unique constraints of the project. I ensure each portion of the plan clicks, as if that design element was meant to be there from the start.”
I focus on space planning, as well as picking appropriate materials and finishes to ensure the space looks as good as it functions. I enjoy supporting my coworkers in their endeavors both in and outside of the office. I primarily work within the healthcare studio now but find my previous experience working on community projects has only improved my ability to make healthcare buildings feel less clinical.
