I enjoy everything about the design process. Seeing projects blossom from conception to realization is extremely satisfying for me. I love taking the information and challenges a project or client presents and incorporating current design trends yet keeping the design classic and timeless, while also keeping the identity of the brand ?rst and foremost. I believe good design can help make the world a better place and a little more aesthetically pleasing, however, I also believe that great design can change the world.

Working along side ceramic artists, furniture and textile designers made for an extremely creative work place and team enviroment, keeping the JA brand cohesive throughout all aspects of the company.
