Teri Chan Palomaki – Scientific Games

In some ways, it seemed as though casinos in the U.S. picked up right where they’d left off when the COVID-19 pandemic began to wane in the face of vaccinations. According to the American Gaming Association, first quarter revenues at casinos this year hit $11.1 billion, matching a high set in the third quarter of […]

Thomas Polansky – Occidental College

Thomas Polansky has loved The Huntington Library, Art Museum and Botanical Gardens since he was a child.

More than places to get a book, they’re education hubs, community centers and places to gather. Yet to fulfill these many roles, the Sno-Isle Libraries system north […]

No design flourishes, no plants, no inspiring artwork—a place to come to work, and that’s it. In other words, “a very sterile, non-creative environment,” says Brain Corp Facilities Director Tim Fritcher. Now, […]
