Designer / Architect / Artist

At Hufft Projects, co-founders Jesse and Matthew fuse traditional, hand-crafted work with revolutionary and equally sophisticated digital technologies, combining these skill-sets to create projects that speak to a future language of art. Their studios comprised of design, wood and metal come together to define their holistic approach and a keen eye to art. “Our formula is simple; we listen to the needs of our clients and then apply extraordinary amounts of experience, craft and technical innovation to create beautiful and thought-provoking design. We view every project and program as a new challenge, so while our basic formula stays the same, our design process is fluid and ever-changing.” Based in Kansas City, Missouri, they were scouted in Architectural Digest as “10 Architecture Firms to Watch,” with their work ranging from residential and commercial to exhibition. Their established studio is very much emerging with the team of 60+ employees whom are all doing some seriously impressive, attention-grabbing work.

CNC (computer numerically controlled)


A 5,000 pound American born CNC (Computer Numerically Controlled) router, lovingly nicknamed ‘Tiny’, has taken up residence at Hufft Projects. She is a vital organ of the shop and is typically where most of our fabrication projects start their journey. This machine is capable of cutting a variety of materials including solid wood, acrylic, and aluminum to accuracies of 1/1000 of an inch; approximately the width of a human hair. These abilities are utilized to expedite the production of cabinetry by cutting and pre-drilling componentry. The same abilities are also tasked in the creation of complex three dimensional geometries used for experimentation and decorative purposes.

Pilates Mat

My anchor and balance, I am a better leader when I am routinely practicing pilates and yoga. Both practices truly center me. I taught pilates for a time in New York where I honed my dedication to it.

When the company hit its 10th anniversary in 2015, I looked around and had this business with over 60 people, 3 kids under 7, 2 dogs, built a residence….i wanted to memorialize all that took place…the tattoo is the first initial of each family member (Matthew, Rock, Cash, Cloverr, Blue Coltrane and Jesse) matthew and I are the bookends to our little clan. Every time I look at it, I am reminded of all that it took to get here and it makes me elated with joy and pride.
