Candidate Statement

As Director at Large, I would use my talents in communication and team work to support the President with special projects and legislative issues. Connection with interior designers at the local and state level will serve as an initial starting point for each task, and then by integrating voices from our larger industry: architecture, construction, product manufacturers, I hope to better serve ASID and create a more holistic design community.
