Sommer Keling
Fall Intern

Years at O’Toole Design? 1 month!

What drew you to O’Toole Design? The fact that ODA is a smaller company is what initially drew me in, and then how kind and comforting everyone was at my interview helped me make the decision to intern here.

What is your favorite project so far at O’Toole Design? I enjoyed choosing carpets for the Magic House because I spent a lot of time there as a child so having a small role in the design as an adult was rewarding!

What has been your most creatively challenging project so far at O’Toole Design? Keeping the materials library clean and organized.

What things do you like most about working at O’Toole Design?My coworkers are fun and keep me on my toes, the amount of experience I have already gained so far in such a short amount of time, and I’m always doing something different every day.

If you could do another job for just one day, what would it be? Librarian

Who inspires you? My mom because she has the kindest heart out of anyone I’ve ever met and she’s the hardest working person I know.

Where is your favorite place in the world? New York City

Any additional comments for our 25th? I haven’t been here long, but I can see why ODA has been so successful over the last 25 years! I’m so excited and grateful for the opportunity to intern at such a strong company with great designers!
