What motivated you to become a designer (or current role?)?
I spent most of my 20s living anywhere except Boston and working on any project type I hadn’t experienced before. It was a years long qualitative life survey that I used to inform later career decisions. My arrival at Bergmeyer was a mix of timing, luck, skill, and determination.
When you are retired and look back on your life, what is the biggest accomplishment you hope to achieve?
I would like to leave a trail of happy people in my wake, and it would be fun if some of the projects I work on stand the test of time so I can visit them later in life.
What does successful workplace culture mean to you?
Creative, cooperative, and collaborative – all in support of perpetuating the business.
If you had to pick one word that best represents Bergmeyer's culture, what would it be, and why?
Unity – we are all moving in the same direction but we welcome and encourage all perspectives and points of view which inform HOW we move in that direction.
What would you be doing if you were not working in this industry?
Leading outdoor programs for disadvantaged youth in rural areas of New England and the UK.
Do you have a talent (outside of being your talented self at Bergmeyer) that you are proud of?
Disc Golf is a sport I came to late in life and I try to get out and rattle the chains every chance I get.
What’s your spirit animal?
The Bernese Mountain Dog: strong, patient, affectionate, intelligent and self-assured.
What are your top three travel destinations?
Costa Rica for the adventure, London UK for the mania, Yosemite National Park for the quiet.
