How do you keep your skills up-to-date with the newest trends and best practices?
CEU’s presentations is one of the best ways to keep up-to-date. You can ask questions about products and also inquire about techniques and applications for current projects. They are helpful in addressing current issues. For example, during a 2018 Code CEU I was able to work through a code issue on current project not only with the presenter but also with those attending the presentation. We all benefitted by applying the learning to a current project.
What advice do you have for people who would like to begin a career in Interior Design?
Love what you do, and be open to ideas, change, and constructive criticism by peers. Learning to be open to new designs and design ideas are paramount to your success.
If you had a free morning and afternoon to do anything, what would you do?
Cycling is a passion. If I had time, I would ride from morning to late afternoon along a long country road to admire the handiwork of God and the beautiful country.
