What attracted you to this profession?
I was always interested in art and science, and architecture married both interests.
What three words would you use to describe your job?
Energizing, challenging, fun
What are the most important personality traits to have in your profession?
Curiosity and fearlessness are two traits not often associated with this profession, but I believe contribute to the making of a good architect.
What’s a typical week in your job like?
As a project manager, I would be in charge of more than one project. A typical week always starts with making sure the projects are on target. These could include meetings with clients to discuss the project status, and the specific design teams to review details, specifications and deadlines.
What do you like most about your job?
I like the fact that no two projects are the same, and that I am always learning.
What’s the most challenging part of your job?
The built environment is itself a major contributor to our current environmental crisis. The challenge to our profession is to incorporate responsible building practices into every project.
What’s the coolest thing you’re working on right now?
It is actually a renovation of an existing mid-1980s, seven-story building. We are taking a senior living community that is much loved (but dated) and updating it inside out, carving out two-story atriums, creating wellness centers, bringing the lush outdoors in, and providing spaces for tech bars.
What have you accomplished at Moseley Architects that you’re proudest of?
Repeat clients. It confirms that the last job was well-done.
What’s your favorite thing to do outside of work?
Traveling (usually to see great architecture around the world)
What music are you listening to right now?
A Zoe Keating playlist
What’s your favorite film? A Room with a View— not just for the gorgeous depictions of Florence, but for the way it showed how the English really began to sell the world on what a proper home should be.
What’s the best gift you’ve ever received?
A Tom Bihn Aeronaut 30 carry-on travel bag. One bag, no checked luggage. Four-continents and counting…
What’s your motto or mantra?
I dwell in Possibility.
