How long have you worked at Weber Thompson and what is your favorite thing about working here?
A bit fuzzy. I originally started in early ’99 while in school, took a leave of absence to study in Mexico for a semester, took another to finish my thesis, & then left to work for another firm for six months before coming back to WT at the end of June in 2005.

What project(s) are you working on at the moment?
Evergreen Plaza in Bellevue is taking all of my time right now, it’s a 154-unit residential project in Downtown Bellevue.
You were recently promoted! What does this mean to you?
I’ve always been someone who wants to do my job well and haven’t worried too much about the career track, but it feels great to get recognition and reach this milestone.
We know you don’t work all the time. What do you do on a typical Saturday morning?
