What do you do now and what are you planning for the future? I consider myself a corporate matchmaker. ESI Design transforms places into experiences and creates interactive, bespoke environments for real estate developers, corporations, retailer and museums. The goal is to bring people together in a space that gives you a feeling of dynamism, community and the flavor of the neighborhood. My mission is to find people who have an appetite for innovation and something custom, who are looking for the next thing in design, and to connect them with our multidisciplinary experience design team.

How do you unwind from a busy day? Check in on my chickens (laying hens), cook for my family, play tennis on a local team, and at my monthly book club.

Favorite book or author: “The Goldfinch” by Donna Tartt

Favorite movie: “The Shining”

Last song you purchased/downloaded? Deadmau5, “I remember”

One word to describe your work environment: Super-creative

Rules to live by in business: Be curious and open to new experiences, both at work and away, so that new ideas can find you. Read, travel, attend lectures and talk to people.

What is your dream job? This is one of them.
