I am most passionate about creating an energetic, diverse, safe and walkable community. I get most excited when I have the opportunity to work on a project that creates a space which meets those goals, which often means working in urban areas or on college campuses.
Music. I love listening to and seeing a favorite band or artist perform live. I don't have a musical bone in my body, but I am in awe of those that make it look easy.
Ha ha! I'm not sure there's much I do in-the-box. The most out-of-the-box, I'd say, is to collaborate with our competitors to inform the public about the importance of design, and how design effects everything you do during the day.

But I would often take a rock or a broken tile from each place to remind me.
