I have no patience for disrespect, inaction in the face of global warming, wasting resources, blaming others for one’s misfortune, hollow conversations, plastic-wrapped magazines, envy or resentment.

I enjoy finding balance with my family and friends; in nature while hiking, biking, and jogging in the mountains and near the water; while singing, cooking, and writing; in my work with art, design, and architecture; in yoga and meditation; and in designing spaces and products.
