What made you want to work here?

I liked how many different types of projects the firm takes on. I love having a variety of things to work on and enjoy learning about new design qualities and requests that different clients have. My coworkers are very smart and capable professionals, I was excited to join the team and learn from them.

What is a type of project that you have always wanted to work on?

I think an entertainment venue or concert hall would be a lot of fun to design!

What are the five favorite projects that you’ve worked on?

Lake Agassiz Education Cooperative: Hawley, MN  This was the first project that I ever worked on. I learned a lot while working on it and got used to how ZBA approaches projects and clients.

Lutheran Church of the Cross: West Fargo, ND  The first project I took lead on for the interiors team. I had to navigate the normal design challenges of a project while also learning how to communicate effectively with the rest of the design team and the client. I learned a lot and had a great time!

Eola Makt: Fargo, ND Another first for me, this was the first mixed-use housing project I lead. This was fun because there were so many different spaces to design, and I really enjoyed the challenge of bringing everything together under a cohesive design umbrella.

Trinity Lutheran Church: Moorhead, MN A huge project with a lot of unique, intricate design pieces. This was a great learning experience!

Northern Cass: Hunter, ND This project also gave me a lot of experience! The school underwent an intensive remodel with an addition. It was fun to play with the existing aesthetic of the school and bring in newer elements to breathe new life into it for the students and staff.

How do you approach a new project/design concept?

I try to gather as much information as I can from the clients. That way I’m able to create a design and palette that reflects the aesthetic the client is looking for and fits well within all contextual factors like lighting, environment, and functionality.
