Get To Know

Good things about the place I live:
Colorado Springs, Colorado, is at the base of America’s Mountain – Pike’s Peak – and the home of the Garden of the Gods, one of the most scenic places in the world.

Hard thing I do for fun:
Trail running, including 100-mile races like Run Rabbit Run out of Steamboat Springs.

Favorite gadget:
My Garmin Instinct Solar Watch because it monitors heart rate while I run, and solar charges too.

Cool travel experience:
Completing the Tour du Mont Blanc, a six-day 105-mile run/walk around an Alp through France, Italy, and Switzerland, with my brother, Jon.

Family fun:
My daughter, River, and I play with a jam band sponsored by a community nonprofit, Concrete Couch. She plays guitar, and I play percussion.

Something I’ve learned during my career:
What’s most important to my on-the-job happiness is not design itself but designing for people.

Work win:
Renovating lighting in the dining room at a senior community to make the space both intimate and well-lit.
