“Creativity, art and ideas are powerful tools that connect people to concepts, although many find them daunting. I love opening doors for people to feel welcome and empowered to participate in the creative process, to discover their voices influencing design and to create new environments. Because this creation blends diverse visions, goals and concepts, people should feel excited to be part of the process. My joy comes from their delight in discovering pieces of themselves in the final designs.”
