Hale runs a boutique architecture firm Pacific Atelier. Pacific Atelier designs real estate projects ranging from large resorts and hotels to residential properties. With 8 architects on staff, they offer an interesting way of building teamwork and corporate culture while adding a twist to their marketing.

Kimi is the ying while Hale is the yang. He handles the technical aspects and she is the creative. In this interview you’ll hear innovative marketing strategies along with how an architecture company can work with the community.

Kimi’s story is a bit different. On a dare she quit her job and opened her own PR firm. After building it up successfully she decided with Hale that being a full time mother was the best thing for the family. For one year she held on to her business until she finally decided to assign her clients and let go. Hear how hard that was and the release she felt once she made the decision to just do it.
