Earth Month Project Feature: 1400 Madison

Sr. Project Manager

How long have you worked at Weber Thompson and what is your favorite thing about working here?

I was hired in 2000, so 15 years. The best thing about working at Weber Thompson is the people. I work with some of the most talented, hard working people in Seattle. It truly has a family feel within the office. This is no mistake, because the firm leadership has crafted this culture from the start.

What project(s) are you working on at the moment?

970 Denny, a 400’ residential tower in South Lake Union. Aside from being the Sr. Project Manager for the project, I’m doing a lot of the detailing, which I haven’t done for a while. It’s a refreshing change to be working at that scale again.
