tell me about yourself?

"I can accept failure, everyone fails at something. But I can't accept not trying." - Michael Jordan

Design is only part of the solution; it’s working with people and discovering their needs that truly makes great architecture. Lyman Hall Library: Syracuse University, NY Revit, Photoshop

vision Some people just want to design, I want to do everything. Nothing would make me happier than to obtain the title of architect. Impossible. Kind of a funny word. Given some time, I’m sure I’ll figure out a solution. I’ve done it before and I have yet to really say something can’t be done.

Growing up on a farm in rural Indiana, I learned quickly that tasks have to be done quickly and effectively, otherwise nothing ever gets moving.

Throughout my college education I was constantly asked, “How did you get here?” To that, I don’t really have an answer; it probably has something to do with my personality and work ethic, a little luck probably didn’t hurt either.

I’m not afraid of new things, traveling to new places and meeting new people is actually one of my favorite things to do. I just want to be in a place where I respect those around me and they respect me. Italy, Japan, Spain. If there has been one thing that I’ve learned in all my travels, nothing beats a smile and an old-fashioned “thank you.”
