why bdh+young rules?

bdh+young rocks because of the awesome work environment and all the people that make it a great place to work.

why design matters?

Good design requires passion, understanding, and a drive to create great work under all sorts of conditions. One of the reasons I am so passionate about design is the idea of helping shape the world around us to become a healthier and more beautiful environment.

favorite hobby and why?

My favorite hobby would be enjoying time with my almost 2 year old nephew Mason. I enjoy spending my days bringing him to the park, going on walks, and of course making him giggle.

when I’m not at work, I like to...

Spend time with family and friends.  I enjoy the outdoors and running 5K races around the Twin Cities area.  My favorite activity is sitting around a campfire on a nice summer’s day.

when in the kitchen, I’m cooking...

I’m cooking PASTA. I have a love for my pasta dishes. My favorite dish is a One Skillet Gnocchi; simple, fast and amazing!
