Honored to Keynote at IIDA Student Conference in Houston

I was extremely pleased to be the keynote speaker at the IIDA Student Conference in Houston on Friday, February 21. It was fantastic to present to an enthusiastic audience of more than 150 interior design students plus many professionals from the Houston area. The IIDA Texas/Oklahoma chapter organizes an excellent event, and students in that part of the country are very fortunate to have this conference, which includes a number of practical, useful discussions, as well as a portfolio review for students to gain portfolio feedback from practitioners. I encourage other IIDA chapters to consider organizing an event such as this, as it clearly was a great benefit to the students who attended from Texas, Oklahoma, and Louisiana.

Here are just a few scenes from IIDA Student Conference.
