Where did you go to school?
I studied communications at Florida Atlantic University in Boca Raton, FL before pursuing an MFA in advertising.

What do you do at RMW?
Supporting our San Francisco, San Jose, and Sacramento Studios, I tell the stories of our projects through marketing and communication mediums.

What do you like about the firm?
There is a strong culture of teamwork here. Across disciplines and studios, we enjoy our work and the people we work with.

What do you do outside the firm?
I absolutely love that San Francisco is a few hours drive from the northern coasts, forests, the desert, and snow-capped peaks, I try to enjoy them all with family and friends. Movies, live music/local art events and gym activities (swim, cycle, yoga, etc.) usually fill the time when Iā€™m not varying from another great recipe.

What is your favorite building or space?
The World Trade Center Transportation Hub in NY is my new favorite building. I was finally able to visit recently and was awed by the overwhelming feeling of reverence in such a public space. Maybe due to the hundreds of lives lost on 9/11 or the result of thoughtful design. The main hall felt like a cathedral in which I should have been solemn, almost doleful while walking through the torso of a giant carcass admiring the curved steel beams that mimicked perfectly whitewashed bones.
