Favorite Project & Why

Over the past few years, we have been engaged with an amazing community of elders at Northaven in the Northgate neighborhood of Seattle. This forward-thinking group of individuals have a transformative vision to create a seniors' hub within a diverse community of housing types and income levels, which has tapped both VIA's urban design and architectural talents.

I enjoy the relationships that architects and planners build with clients, communities and the end users. I see us bringing our skill and training to facilitate and implement vision.

Favorite Thing to Do

I love living in a city and and am fortunate to have access to so many experiences. My favorite activity is interacting with the diverse Capitol Hill neighborhood, whether it be having a cup of coffee, shopping for groceries or dining out while feeling connected to a vibrant and evolving place.
