When did you know you wanted to be a designer?

I wasn’t sure until halfway through college, after studying abroad in Florence, Italy. When I returned, I took a studio course and the rest is history!

What’s the biggest highlight of your career?

A big highlight was working on the $140-million renovation and expansion of Greater Columbus Convention Center from start to finish, a total of three and a half years of involvement.

Do you have any hidden talents?

I can hold my breath for a long time!

What’s the best thing about working at Mancini?

I really appreciate how Mancini provides encouragement and support for everyone’s individual way of growth within the design industry.

What was your first computer—and what did you spend the most amount of time doing on it?

My first computer was an old hand-me-down IBM PC with no operating system, just Command Prompt. I would spend time navigating and searching for games by entering commands.

What’s the technology Mancini uses that most impresses clients?

We use Revit to explore new ways of improving how we generate contract documentation.

What is the one piece of technology you are most thankful for?

The computer mouse, if we’re talking about computers. I also think the airplane is a great invention.
