  1. For as volatile and rocky as 2017 was, it will always hold a special place in my heart as it was the year Joe and I welcomed our sweet little baby Birdie into the world.

  2. Bridging the gap between the digital expression of W&D and the physical manifestation of what we’ve built is the ultimate dream for me.
