Where did you go to school?
California Polytechnic State University, San Luis Obispo

What do you do at RMW?
As a workplace strategist and project manager, I’m a problem solver.

What do you like about the firm?
Besides the great design, the people. It’s refreshing to work in such a supportive and collaborative environment that allows each person to flourish in their own way.

What do you do outside the firm?
I have season tickets to the SF Ballet and SHN SF.  But the best times are the monthly family dinners with my mom and nephews.

What is your favorite building or space?
For me, it’s all about the experience.  When I first moved back to SF in 2010 after a decade in LA, I noticed that a lot of new, beautiful buildings had been built. At the time, I worked close to Union Square and would see this fantastic view from the corner of Geary & Grant. Although the city has evolved, it is still one of my favorite sights. The next time you’re in that area, look down Geary towards Market, and you’ll see The Palace Hotel with the JP Morgan Chase Building designed by Pelli Clarke Pelli as its backdrop. I love it. It’s the first hint of the many layers of the South of Market district.
