Being outdoors. They call Arkansas 'the Natural State' for a reason. I love to camp, hike, and bike. I am always dreaming about new adventures (I really want to buy a kayak). Being outdoors inspires me and often helps me slow down the pace of life.
Designboom.com and Dezeen.com. Both of these design blogs post stories about cutting edge architecture, but also branch out into other design fields. I can stay up to date and inspired by furniture, auto, fashion, product, graphic design, and more.
Being able to fly. As someon who's interested in buildings, patterns, and urban development, I can always appreciate a birds-eye view.
That I am a good team member / collaborator. Working together is something we all must do in every area of our life. As an architect, it is a daily expectation and vital part of my job. Outside of work, good teamwork helps me build relationships and achieve more than I could on my own. It leads to new perspectives, learning, and growth.
An Architect - seriously, I decided when I was 12. Before that, I was sure I'd be a fireman, policeman, or garbageman. Something with a big, cool truck.
Hike the Inca Trail to Machu Picchu in Peru.
The Roof Cafe. They use all local ingredients. They make in-house specialties ranging from sodas to baked goods. They're in a really neat part of town called SoMA, or South Main Street. And their dining room is made of converted shipping containers. What more could you ask for!?
A collection of small, musical instruments. I collect them when I travel. I have instruments that range from bamboo wind pipes to a ram's horn.
