“The best part of my job is seeing my designs come to life.”
Seeing my kids wear the elaborate Halloween costumes I designed and crafted for them, including the Pillsbury Dough Boy, Mary Poppins, and a vending machine.
My childhood pet:
An Amazon parrot named Pickles who does not like boys. Parrots can live 75 years, so Pickles now lives with my sister.
One of my many interests:
Cars! One time I swapped out our broken alternator belt with a pair of pantyhose during a road trip.
I like to fix and put things together, from Legos to IKEA furniture.
How I got into this business:
My dad said if you like architecture and you’re good at math, you should do architectural engineering. I trusted him, and he was right.
Bachelor of Architectural Engineering, University of Colorado at Boulder, 1994
