As a kid what did you want to be when you grew up?: I knew I wanted to go into some sort of design field from a young age, actually. My dad is an architect, so I was exposed to the field early on.
What is a skill you'd like to learn and why?: I’d really love to become savvier with the technical aspects of photography and graphics/ web design.  I have a huge interest and a basic skill set in both, but having a strong base in these skills would really help me become more of a multidisciplinary designer which is something I’d like to do.
If you could have dinner with any person, dead or alive, who would it be?: I'm going to cheat and pick one from each category: I would have dinner with both Ellen DeGeneres and my grandmother who passed away when I was younger.
If you could travel anywhere in the world where would you go?: Ireland is at the top of my bucket list right now.
Lesson learned that has benefited you most in your career: A lesson learned which has helped me most so far is not being afraid to ask questions. Being only a year and a half into my career I’ve learned so much already, but by the same token have a lot more to continue learning. I’ve been lucky to work with great individuals, both within my firm and from other disciplines on project teams, whose explanation of all the “why’s” and “how’s” that go along with the design and construction process have helped build up my knowledge and confidence in what I do. 
Why did you choose to become an Interior Designer?: I feel that the ability to create someone’s environment is hugely important. I remember certain spaces making me feel a certain way when I was younger, and as I got older beginning to take note of what exactly about the space it was which triggered that. I chose to become an interior designer to create spaces which will affect the way the people residing it will feel, interact, and hopefully to trigger something to make it memorable to them. There is an equal mix of creativity and technical skill that comes with the field which is also an aspect that I enjoy.
Most significant inspiration: My parents.
