why bdh+young rules?

bdh+young is a great company with great people to work with!

why design matters?

We all want to be happy in our daily lives; at work and at home.  We spend so much time in our place of business, our home and countless other areas we occupy during our day.  I feel good design helps us to enjoy where we spend our time, helps us feel comfortable and secure, and perhaps most importantly helps us be happy.

who do you look up to?

I look up to my father, who has always been an amazing role model for anyone he knows. I hope to be a good example for those around me as well.

favorite hobby?

Currently it’s gardening. I like the science behind growing good vegetables, and there is much for me to learn. I love the connection to nature, watching things grow and I get much satisfaction from enjoying the food that is produced.  

when I'm not at work, I like to...

I like to stay active and enjoy our place in the country. My wife and I have 5.5 acres to maintain, which I find very relaxing.
