Doron Dreksler started from an early age playing with Legos, slot cars and building forts. This led to a career in design and construction and a passion for anything with a gas pedal and a steering wheel. In 1994, Doron started his first design business which has morphed into a design consulting, architecture and design-build construction business called Spire Architecture, Inc. In addition to design and architecture, education, and volunteering for activities that help shape the built environment, Doron has a passion for his family, travel, being outdoors, running and racing sports cars.

At home in Mill Valley, Logan Link is a founding member of a real estate team within Compass. Her work as an agent, combined with a lifetime spent in Marin, has allowed her to develop a deep understanding of our unique county.
Logan enjoys building community and holds a belief that most every problem is solvable - and exciting progress can be made - when local residents work with one another and their government in open-minded collaboration. She is creative by nature and promotes outside-the-box thinking.
Andrea Montalbano is a registered architect with a background in residential, commercial and mixed-use design. She is interested in the social aspects of the built environment - how we shape the environment and how it shapes us - and holds a post-professional Master of Science in Architecture degree, with an emphasis in City and Regional Planning, from UC Berkeley. Andrea has worked exclusively in the field of single-family residential design for the past ten years and is presently Senior project architect at Sogno Design Group, in Albany, California.
Andrea joined the Design Review Board in 2017, where she seeks to balance the preservation and enhancement of the natural environment with today's socio-economic challenges; increased housing demand and modernization as well as commercial development pressures and its necessities. She has resided in Mill Valley's Muir Woods Park neighborhood since 2014 and believes that southern Marin County is best place to live in the world, not only because of its vast open space adjacent to a world-class city and its open minded, forward-thinking residents, but because of its irresistibly charming and unique built environment, which she hopes to help protect.
