Kristen seeks to deepen her passion and use architecture as a way to be the hands and feet of Jesus and show Christ’s love to his people to all nations. Whether it involves designing, dreaming, or physically constructing spaces or communities, Kristen desires to see all aspects of architecture begin to restore the hope and hearts of many people and allow them to experience the power and love of Jesus.
Kristen enjoys exploring, whether it is traveling to new places and experiencing the local culture or in nature through hiking, kayaking, or just sitting and embracing the peace it has to offer. Kristen loves spending time with her family, connecting with friends over a cup of coffee or scoops of ice cream, or lacing her sneakers up for a game of volleyball.

Alyssa became an architect because she loves creating beautiful solutions to difficult problems. Because we spend a majority of time in buildings, Alyssa loves that, as an architect, she can totally change the quality of the client’s life simply by creating beautiful, functional spaces. She believes that all humans are worthy of beautiful design, no matter who they are.
Alyssa is happiest doing just about anything she can outside. She loves looking out her desk window at 100 Fold to see deer prancing through the woods. Her favorite past time is building dining room tables, mainly so she has a beautiful place to share a tasty meal she cooks with family or friends.

Naomi has loved filmmaking ever since one momentous (and disastrous) high school project. She is hoping to communicate the stories here at 100 Fold through video so you can see the good work God is doing, whether it be by introducing team members, explaining projects and ministries that we partner with, reporting on our international trips, or giving y’all a tour of our new office!
She loves developing film by hand, important software unexpectedly auto-updating, and very very short walks on the beach.
