What drew you to Miller Hull?
The history and evolution of the firm. Once I started researching it, the way it started with service-based projects, earth sheltered cabins kind of evolved to these big institutional and even embassy-type projects. It’s just been fascinating to watch and cool to be a part of.

What projects have you worked on/are currently working on?
UCSD Torrey Pines, ARCC and awards graphics for IDEA1 and Del Mar Civic Center

Is this internship what you were expecting?
I didn’t really know what to expect, I just wanted to be able to do what was asked of me. But it has exceeded expectations in the sense that everyone’s been really helpful and patient. They’ve taught me a ton and helped me on my journey.

What has been your favorite part of the internship so far?
I’d say learning Lumion. Total game changer. Makes really nice images a lot easier than I was ever able to do them before.

What has been the most challenging?
Probably the coffee machine here. It’s defeated me a couple of times.
