What architect/designer/project most inspires you and why?


Filippo Brunelleschi, for his ingenuity on the Dome at Florence’s Cathedral.  I’ve read a few books on the Duomo and it’s a fascinating story.  Then, having the opportunity to visit Florence and walk up the winding 463 steps was an awesome experience.  Brunelleschi was a great architect, but more impressive was his talent as a Master Builder, which is something I strive to be.

 

What is the best advice you have ever received?


The best advice I’ve received is from a TED talk from retired four-star General Stanley McChrystal in which he states; “A leader isn’t good because they’re right; they’re good because they’re willing to learn and to trust.  If you’re a leader, the people who you’ve counted on will help you up if you get knocked down.  If you’re a leader, the people who count on you need you on your feet.”

 

What is your favorite food or cocktail?


Surf and Turf.  I love a good center cut filet and lobster!

 

As a child, what did you want to be when you grew up and why?


I wanted to be a movie star.  I took acting classes as a child, but my shyness was too much to overcome.  It wasn’t until junior high school that I started tinkering with drawing floor plans and building things.
