What inspired you to choose your current career path?
I remember seeing a few old stone barns in Chester County converted to modern homes or venues and knew that I wanted to be a designer. The thought of preservation and giving a structure a second chance has always been attractive to me.
What is your proudest accomplishment to-date?
Biking over 9,000 miles from Philadelphia to Panama City will forever be one of my proudest accomplishments.
If you had to choose a different career, what would it be?
A chef. I love cooking and found that it's not only a stress release but a great outlet for creativity.
