If you won a lottery ticket for a million dollars, what would you do with it?: Pay off student loans, beautifully furnish my apartment, save!
If you could trade lives with one person for an entire day who would it be and why?: Kristen Bell. She is a remarkable person who is always doing amazing things to help those in need. I would be honored to spend a day in her shoes.
You've been given access to a time machine, where and when would you travel to?: I would travel to Barcelona, at any point in time, to experience the great architecture and design that has happened there. It's such an inspiring city and would be amazing to experience during its prime. 
What is your most bizarre talent?: I am surprisingly good at billiards.
Lesson learned that has benefited you most in your career: One of the first "Design 101" lessons I learned from a co-worker right after graduation was to always match your wall base to the tone of the floor, not the wall. This allows the client to have more flexibility with their space long term.
Why did you choose to become an Interior Designer?: was always drawing and building space as a kid, and when deciding where to go for college, it was just a natural transition for me. I became so interested in designing space and knew I found my passion.
What is one goal you'd like to accomplish in your lifetime?: I would like to travel as much as possible, and experience design all over the world.
