why bdh+young rules?

It just does! I have felt amazingly welcome here ever since I started. We are a close nit group of creatives that all collaborate to take great care of our clients. I love that everyone works hard and plays hard. Through watching how everyone interacts with one another, I can tell that people here really care about one another. We also do amazing work in the community, like Simpson Housing. I love that component of this firm.

why design matters?

Good design can make a huge difference in the end users’ daily life. We spend most of our time indoors, in a built environment. Designers have the unique ability to determine what that experience will be. Through thoughtful and customized design, a beautiful space can be realized. We touch people daily and affect their mood, comfort and overall health with our designs. I get to walk in the shoes of my end user when I design. I try to challenge myself to think differently and expand my understanding. Design matters because it is fundamental in creating spaces that serve our clients in the best way possible.

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

Be outside. I really enjoy going for walks around Minneapolis and exploring the area. I sometimes just go for walks with my friends and we just pick a direction and go.  It is great for discovering little restaurants and shops, as well as cool little parks and fun areas. I also like to play with my 2 cats!

favorite hobby?

Photography (film), I can get lost in the process. The taking the pictures, the processing the film and the developing the prints. It is creative, scientific, and personal.
