(Moderator) Carolyne Zinko, Editor-in-Chief, Modern Luxury Silicon Valley magazine
Carolyne is a treasured voice in the Bay Area, where readers have come to know her as the chief style and culture reporter at the San Francisco Chronicle, where she had previously been a staff writer for the past 22 years. A three-decade resident of Silicon Valley, who as a young journalist attended Stanford's Mass Media Institute, Carolyne brings with her a vast network of connections within the Valley's tech, fashion, design, media, philanthropy, and arts communities. Starting her career at the Peninsula Times Tribune and the San Jose Mercury News, Carolyne has covered every aspect of life in the Valley, from crime and court hearings to glamorous parties and larger-than-life personalities.

Hannah Collins, Founder & Principal Designer, ROY

From growing up in a household of family-owned restaurants, Hannah has always been completely immersed in the hospitality industry. During her time studying at Academy of Art University, Hannah worked at San Francisco institutions, The Slanted Door and Beretta. In 2014, after working at a high-end residential design firm, she left to pursue her passion in hospitality and founded Hannah Collins Design. She has been responsible for some of the city’s most popular restaurants such as Media Noche, Delarosa, a Mano, Super Duper and Barzotto. In 2015, Hannah was named “Emerging Designer of the Year” by California Home + Design magazine. In 2016, Hannah partnered with her sister, Emily Collins, to transform Hannah Collins Design into ROY, a full-service hospitality design studio based in San Francisco.

Jonathan Feldman, AIA, LEED, AP, Founder/CEO, Feldman Architecture

Since establishing the firm in 2003 in the basement of his San Francisco Victorian, Jonathan has watched Feldman Architecture grow into a residential and commercial design practice recognized for creating warm, light-filled spaces with an understated modern aesthetic. Jonathan is passionate about design that solves complex problems and committed to creating solutions that significantly improve the way we live and interact with our small planet. His work reflects an understanding of the clear connection between a building and its surrounding environment and has earned accolades from local, national, and international awards committees and recognition from numerous books and periodicals. Jonathan earned a liberal arts degree from Amherst College, where he majored in Astronomy and English, then both explored a career in filmmaking and worked as a carpenter prior to pursuing architecture. He received his Masters of Architecture (M. Arch) from the University of Oregon, where he took advantage of the program’s strong focus on sustainable design (as well as the Northwest’s spectacular mountains and back-country). A registered architect in California, Oregon, Hawaii, Massachusetts, and New Mexico, Jonathan enjoys sharing his knowledge of architecture and sustainable design on panels and serves on competition juries for local and national design awards. He lives in San Francisco with his wife, two daughters, and an ever-increasing number of rescued animals.

Olle Lundberg, Design Principal, Lundberg Design

Olle was born in Cincinnati, Ohio, two weeks after his parents emigrated from Sweden. His father was a chemical engineer at Proctor & Gamble and spent most of his career managing paper mills in the Mid-West. Olle graduated with a Masters of Architecture (M.Arch.) from the University of Virginia in 1979 and started Lundberg Design in 1987. His 20 person practice has always been involved in a wide variety of building types, with such diverse projects as Twitter Headquarters, HardWater Whiskey Bar, AutoDesk’s Pier 9 Labs, Distillery 209, the Slanted Door restaurant, Hourglass Winery, and even San Francisco’s bus shelters. The firm has also always done private residential work, sometimes in far-flung places such as Salt Spring Island, Hawaii, New York, and New England. The firm’s work has always been marked by its attention to detail, its love of substantial materials, and its honoring of the notion of craft in their buildings. To that end the firm has always had a fabrication studio that is an integral part of the design practice – a facility that enables them to build many of the signature pieces that define and make personal their projects. Plus it allows Olle to own a lot of really nice tools.

Billy Quimby, Principal, BAMO

With a Bachelor of Architecture degree from Cornell University, Billy joined BAMO in 2000 and discovered the world of interiors, designing for hospitality and residential clients around the world. Challenged very early in his career to focus on intricately detailing his projects from concept to completion, Billy prides himself on creating meticulous backdrops on which to layer the design story. As a Principal of BAMO and registered architect, he has a masterful ability to find balance and harmony in the most complex of projects, easily navigating and imposing his contemporary vision with resourceful, hands-on execution. The recently completed Four Seasons Resort Dubai at Jumeirah Beach was honored with a 2015 Gold Key Award, and joins Billy’s collection of work including the Taj Mahal Palace Mumbai, Four Seasons Doha, The Grand Hotel a Villa Feltrinelli, the recently completed revamp of the Ritz-Carlton Chicago, and private homes in Hong Kong and California. His projects have been featured in Architectural Digest, Boutique Design, Interior Design, Modern Luxury Interiors and Town & Country. Billy is also a Boutique 18 Award Winner.
