Our Nike Portland’s LEED Platinum store was named by Design : Retail as Best Designed & Best Green store of 2012. Along with my team, we redefined the Starbucks experience with localized LEED new concepts starting in 2009. We won a 2013, 2012, two 2011 & four 2010 ARE Awards, a 2011 VMSD and 2011 AIA Awards. My projects have been featured in design magazines -VSMD, Interiors & Sources, Design : Retail- and USAToday, Bloomberg BusinessWeek, Seattle Magazine, the Harvard Business Review and MiND Magazine.

Studied film production design with industry legend Lawrence Paull (Blade Runner, Back to the Future, etc) and won Best Production Design at the 2006 Milan Film Festival. I production designed “Good Time Max” a feature film directed by James Franco and screened at film festivals worldwide.
