Time with LHB: 3 Years
What’s your favorite LHB project you’ve worked on? I love coordinating and participating in the Second Harvest Heartland volunteer opportunities in Minneapolis. Since the summer of 2017, the Minneapolis office has volunteered at Second Harvest Heartland eleven times, helping to sort and pack thousands of pounds of food. Through the years we’ve sorted and packed potatoes, onions, apples, rice, beans, and my personal favorite, Mermaid Cereal. If you haven’t joined us yet, please do! It’s so much fun and feels rewarding every single time. And kids 8 years and older are invited as well!
What does performance driven design mean to you? It means having a broad world view aimed at making a better, healthier, and more sustainable future.
If you weren’t the editor of the LHB blog, what would you be doing? I would probably be living in a small, old castle in Ireland, writing the great American novel by day and performing in shows all across the Isle at night.
