Years at CGS?
2 Years

What is the best piece of advice you have ever received?

I gravitate to a quote from Frederick Buechner on vocation as “the place where your deep gladness and the world’s deep hunger meet.” The best advice I’ve received reminds me of this intersection.

What inspires you when it comes to design + architecture?

I’m inspired by architecture’s capacity to raise people’s quality of life and contribute to a sense of place.

What do you like most about working with CGS?

I enjoy working with the people at CGS and the firm's collaborative and aspirational approach to design.
