Civic plaza at Indianapolis International Airport will greet fans and families for the NCAA's march madness.

Synthesis was pleased to welcome five new team members the last couple of months. Meet the newcomers: Morgan Conner, Rebekah Lewis, Youstina Farid, Anisha Paudel, Todd Carlson, and Martha Reyes.

Morgan Conner

As Marketing Designer for Synthesis, Morgan Conner will be responsible for translating the Synthesis's business objectives into marketing strategies. She earned her Bachelor of Fine Arts at Herron School of Art + Design at IUPUI. Morgan brings a fresh perspective to the Synthesis team and a keen eye for visual design.

What inspires you? Despite being an introvert, I'm thankful to have a small but very close network of friends. It’s fun to enjoy life alongside likeminded individuals and it's great to learn and enhance my perspective by spending time with peers of various backgrounds and pursuits.

What do you like to do in your free time? On weekday evenings after work I'm typically working on my small business where I make candles, which takes up most of my free time. When I can find the spare time, I'll use all of it that I can reading.

Rebekah Lewis

Rebekah Lewis is a Graduate Architect at Synthesis. She earned her Bachelor of Arts in Architectural Studies at Judson University. Rebekah works along side others to put together designs and complete construction documents.

What inspires you?

Many things inspire me. My family and friends support me as I try to achieve my goals, while keeping me grounded. The children I coach work hard to become the best gymnasts they can be, as they do what they love most. Working in architecture provides me with the same opportunity to work in a field that I enjoy, being creative, while continually growing my skills and meeting new challenges.

What do you like to do in your free time?

In my free time, I enjoy coaching gymnastics and playing my bass.

Tina Farid

Youstina Farid earned her Bachelor’s Degree in Egypt, and she joins Synthesis as a Graduate Architect with 5 years of architectural experience in overseas planning and design.

What inspires you? Being around my family and friends is the meaning of my life. Their love is an amazing thing! The support, respect, and magic from them never fails. Also, helping people and making them happy is the real meaning of happiness; I am inspired and honored to be part of the things that I can be. What do you like to do in your free time? In my free time I enjoy socializing and going out to meet friends. Also, I like to travel and explore new places and cultures. I enjoy cooking and trying new recipes.

Anisha Paudel

Anisha Paudel is a Graduate Architect, originally from the land of mountains, Nepal. She earned her bachelor’s in architecture from Nepal Engineering College Bhaktapur, Nepal, and her Master of Architecture from Indiana University.

What inspires you? Many things inspire me. Especially, I am inspired by my family and their hard work and dedication to each other. And seeing some results of my hard work also inspires me the most. In the field of Architecture, we need to spend a lot of time and effort to design something and when I see my own design implemented in the real world, it gives me both satisfaction and inspiration to continuing design more projects and spending long days in front of the computer.

What do you like to do in your free time? In my spare time, I like to spend time with my family as I hardly get time to spend with them. Apart from this, I am a nature lover and love to travel various places around the world. I love hiking and camping. I also love to create artwork such as painting and printmaking.

Todd Carlson

Todd Carlson serves as our Director of Studio Operations. His father was a psychologist, his paternal grandfather was an engineer, and his maternal grandfather was a builder. When you look at his family tree, you could understand why architecture is in his DNA. He is motivated to see how our projects can promote wellness through quality design.

What do you like to do in your free time?

When I'm not at the office, I enjoy investing in the lives of my children and grandchildren or I'm on a continual quest to discover the world's finest hamburger joint. I recently started playing the drums. Now that the kids are gone, I can bang away in the basement to my favorite rock songs and not bother anyone.

What inspires you? I know we are supposed to inspire our children, but I’m constantly amazed how often my children inspire me. Their loving, thoughtful, and kind spirit have made me a better person.

Martha Reyes

Martha Reyes recently relocated from Los Angeles, California to Greenwood, Indiana. She graduated from University of California Los Angeles where she earned her Associate Degree with emphasis in Business Administration. She brings with her an extensive experience as an Executive Administrative Assistant and Office Manager.

What inspires you?

Living life to the fullest and focusing on the positive.

What do you like to do in your free time?

Riding my Ducati on the weekends, entertaining at home; trying out new recipes on friends; spending time with my baby, Precious (Highland White Terrier).

We are thrilled to welcome these new Synthians!
