Greatest point of pride? Surviving the 2009
recession. My former company laid off 100
people over the course of six months and I
was one of them. I did everything from being
a nanny, substitute teacher, handyman,
freelance draftsman, and finally running my
own ice cream business, which led me to
investigate getting an MBA and making myself
a better and more well-informed professional.
If you weren't a designer, what would you
be doing? Still running my ice cream
business. Yum.
What trend needs to go? Overly precious
design. The world is getting more casual
and people are becoming more open to each
other. While "only experience with your eyes"
can be nice visually, it can be limiting.
What challenges your design process? The
disappearing distinction between F&B,
public amenity, and hotel will bring a lot of
developers from non-hospitality industries.
Much education will be needed for them and
a different approach for us.
Any advice? A former boss taught me to make
sure I understand everything about what I
design. If I didn't know how it got built, I had
no authority to draw it. He ultimately taught
me how to teach others.

I'm most proud of: Accepting a job offer in
Phnom Penh, Cambodia, after being given only
24 hours to decide. I had never even traveled
outside of the U.S. When I received the call, I
felt I had no choice but to jump. I immediately
began releasing all my attachments: informed
my friends and family, closed out all accounts,
gave away the majority of my belongings, and
minimized my life into two suitcases, one duffel
bag, and a backpack. Ten days later I was living
in the Kingdom of Wonder.
What can we expect of our guestroom
experiences in the next 5 years? 100 percent
personalized and all navigated through our
phones. Ethically sourced materials and
sustainable designs will be required, not
optional-as typical as designing with
ADA codes.
Trend you're loving? Any and all things terrazzo.
Where do you escape? My home is my
sanctuary-fi lled with plants, incense, candles,
and things I've collected from my travels around
the world. This is my peace and how I relax.
What can't you live without? Chips and guac!
