What inspired you to be an Architect?
"My whole life I have had a passion for makings things. It started as a kid, playing with Legos or building toy race car tracks out of paper towel rolls and cardboard boxes. In high school, I ended up taking a drafting class, and loved it so much that I took 3 more. I loved seeing how things were put together and it just stuck."
What does your perfect Saturday look like?
"My perfect Saturday would include waking up early to head to a local farm to pick fresh berries, then I would head to Angels of Assisi and take one of their dogs on a hike. I really enjoy hiking, playing tennis, and being outside. I would end my Saturday by watching the sunset over the Blue Ridge Parkway with my girlfriend, Breanna."
