Who or what inspired(s) you to pursue your profession?

I’m inspired by the human connection and community that are fostered in different types of interior spaces. The action and interaction of people in an environment can be strongly influenced by the form and functionality. Volume, shape, materiality and lighting can be manipulated to respond to its users’ needs and enhance a person’s experience to contribute to one’s overall mental and physical wellbeing.
