What do you do when you’re not designing? “I’m the executive director of Islesford Boatworks, a nonprofit youth program that teaches children the art of wooden boat building on Little Cranberry Island in Maine. I started the program with my brother and sister six years ago, and we’ve built a new boat every summer, including two wooden sailing skiffs, two skin-on-frame boats, and a plywood skiff. This summer we built an ambitious wooden rowboat — a Chummy Spurling skiff — that has historical roots on the island.”
