Vern finds clever design everywhere. Whether it’s the way a well-crafted mug feels in their hand, a fantastic color palette on a billboard, or the quiet, ironic glamour of a suburban strip mall. Vern attended the University of Southern California and received a Bachelor's in Architecture. Vern fabricates furniture, shoots film photography, and paints to find inspiration. They are continually motivated to help others’ visions become reality—Vern believes that architecture is an industry of the people, and they are driven to finding beautiful and sustainable solutions to problems. Vern believes that architects have the gift of expert imagination and visual communication, and that gift should be used in all aspects of design. For Vern, collaboration breeds inspiration, innovation, and solutions.
