I am motivated by the fact that every carpet tile that I sell helps to break the cycle of the take-make-waste economic model that is robbing future generations of the equal opportunity to live and prosper on a healthy and verdant planet.

My goals, professionally, are to accurately educate end-users, the A+D community and flooring dealers about the benefits of Interface and FLOR carpet tiles to the performance, well being and sustainability of the built environment.
