What drew you to Miller Hull?
The level of design, the level of intent, how clean and natural it feels. It’s just done right. You know when you walk into a space and you say, “OK, this is clearly over designed. This too in your face?” Something that’s well designed, you don’t even notice. It just works. In that space you’re comfortable, you feel uplifted. But, then when you do start noticing, you notice how the tables are made, everything’s flush, the connections and whatnot. It’s beautiful.

What VERBS have you worked in/are currently working in?
I’ve worked on some GATHER, SERVE and LEARN projects.

Is this internship what you were expecting?
It’s much better. I didn’t realize how well they would treat us or how interactive everybody is. Not just interns, but even partners, it feels like everyone is on a similar playing field. You feel like you have a seat at the table and your voice matters.

What has been your favorite part of the internship so far?
The Friday outings are nice. That’s every so often. I don’t know…just every day. It’s all surreal and it’s all going to end. I’m kind of bummed out about that. My least favorite part will be leaving.

What has been the most challenging?That’s another great thing about this internship. They don’t ask too much of you. They pretty much have it down to a science, “This is what you’re capable of, this is what we expect from you.” But also, they’ll push you, too.

Oh, another thing that I liked was Design Panel and how it’s about collaborative thinking. I remember Sage School needed some keywords and phrases and everyone got so into it, down to the detail of a word and how you’re going to say it, the importance of dictation and whatnot.
