BRPH recently appointed three interior design studio leaders: Stephanie Mastriano and Dana Herron, both of whom have been with the firm for several years, and Emily Clarke, who joined the firm this month from Gensler Atlanta.
In December 2022, Cristi Moore, ASID, IISA, NCIDQ, joined BRPH as interior design practice leader. Committed to building a team of multi-disciplined designers and elevating design across the firm’s project portfolio and client base nationwide, she will rely on Mastriano, Herron and Clarke to provide dedicated leadership to the interiors team.

With an extensive portfolio in hospitality and commercial/third space interiors, Mastriano has designed a wealth of resort, vacation/country club and hotel projects for brands including Marriott, Autograph Collection, Wyndham and Holiday Inn, among other confidential clients, as well as workspaces for companies including JetBlue and L3Harris Technologies. A licensed interior designer, Mastriano has been with BRPH for four years and in the design industry for 16.
“Stephanie’s strengths lie in leading the design experience — she is adept at evaluating and reframing the design opportunity to create meaningful and impactful experiences, whether for guests at a luxury resort or employees in a high-tech office environment,” said Moore. “I have every confidence in her ability to inspire conceptual thinking and creativity, and to ensure design excellence from our team.”
As a studio leader, Mastriano will provide dedicated leadership to the interiors team and expertise in the experiential design approach. Based in the Orlando studio but working with an interiors team nationwide, she will collaborate with clients to define their goals, then interpret that vision through conceptual thinking and impactful design, overseeing projects from initial business development through the completion of construction and installation.

A licensed interior designer, among many other industry certifications, Herron has been with BRPH for six years and working in the industry for 17.
”Dana brings a modern design sensibility to her work, integrating and leveraging technology to drive the design process, refine her craft and deliver project excellence that our clients really value,” said Moore. “With dual degrees in interior design, as well as business administration/financial management, she excels at both big-picture design and the details of project/process management.”
As a studio leader, Herron will provide dedicated leadership to the interiors team and expertise in the technical design approach. Based in the Charleston, South Carolina, studio but working with an interiors team nationwide, she will be responsible for working collaboratively with clients and her design team to define strategic goals and oversee projects from initial business development through the completion of construction and installation, as well as coordinating and managing project delivery efforts, performing quality assurance reviews on design documents and providing technical direction over project delivery.
Emily Clarke, NCIDQ, IIDA
New to BRPH, Clarke brings 12 years of industry experience to her role. Having spent the last decade of her career at Gensler in Atlanta, she has worked for global hospitality clients including Marriott, Hilton, Hyatt, Hard Rock and Loews, among others, as well as commercial and retail brands such as Microsoft, NCR and Toto.
An award-winning designer, Clarke was most recently named “2022 Designer of the Year” at IIDA Georgia’s Best of the Best Awards and received an ASID GA Gold Design Excellence Award for her design vision on Foxhall Clubhouse.
“I am thrilled to bring a talent like Emily aboard at BRPH to build our interiors practice and strengthen the design experience for our clients,” said Moore. “Her strong portfolio of award-winning work in hospitality shows she is truly gifted at ideating solutions through storytelling, place making and conceptual thinking to create truly memorable experiences for guests.”
