Within your firm, who has helped you succeed within the industry? How have they helped you? At Patriquin Architects, I can’t think of anyone who hasn’t helped me succeed within the industry. One person who has helped me immensely has been Max Ballardo. He has helped me get a better understanding of the impact of small details in design. He has shown me how the shape of molding or a paint color can greatly change the perception of a space, as well as how to be cognizant of such details. He has also shown how looking into those details can inform how you bring a design into reality through choosing the right products.
