Director of Design

To me, EWP is: EWP is my home away from home, a space where I can continually explore my passion for architecture and design alongside friends and colleagues. We are a full-service architectural design firm that specializes in workplace environments. Our practice is based on a collaborative approach and exceptional project leadership. We work with our clients to create strategic environments unique to their needs.

My path to architecture and design: As I reflect back, my love for design began at an early age. Many hours were spent crafting my own Barbie dreamhouse. Cardboard boxes, construction paper, and wrapping paper were the building blocks for my creative experiments. However, it wasn’t until a pivotal moment during my junior year of high school, during a spring break vacation to Italy with my mom, that I truly realized my passion for design. I recall returning from our trip feeling strongly that my future would include a career in design. Since then, my continued inspiration and passion for the craft has been influenced by opportunities to travel throughout Europe and China.

My role at EWP: As Director of Design, my role revolves around design thinking—cultivating a climate of design in the office, mentoring staff, developing design concepts, selecting finishes, specifying furniture, and preparing drawings for projects. Additionally, I manage our firm-wide material library.

Outside of EWP: You’ll find me spending time with my puppy, Madie, enjoying time with my family and friends, working out on my treadmill, sailing on Lake Michigan, or planning my next trip.
