"Design can be like cooking. You don't always follow the recipe. You start off with an outcome in mind then go off on a tangent adding and changing things to spice things up and make it a one of-a-kind creation."

"My favorite aspect of the design process is seeing something that was once just in a thought in my head develop from that thought, be created in Revit, printed onto sheets of paper, and then constructed into a built environment."
