Family Portrait

My favorite family portrait was taken at a small noodle shop in Manhattan, but even our closest family and friends would have trouble finding us in the photo.  This point of view –  that the sum of a thing can be greater than its most obvious parts - first inspired me to study interior design.

I was 16-years-old when my father and I went to the United States Holocaust Memorial Museum. Subtleties of the design had an enormous impact on me – beyond just what I saw. The contrast between the dark, cold museum exhibit spaces and daylit stairway lounges between exhibit floors engaged my emotions deeply. While museums like the USHHMM are built to honor world-changing events and lend themselves to becoming life-changing spaces, I believe our everyday spaces should aspire to change lives as well.
