“I've witnessed how a well-designed project can bring people together in new ways, can give a town or city a renewed sense of self, and can revitalize the local economy. If we do our jobs right, we can transform not only buildings, but communities.”

“My inspiration comes from detours when I'm traveling; from pulling off the side of the road when something catches my eye or from stopping at a local restaurant. No matter where I am, I'll stop and talk to people and explore. You can't get to know the community you are designing for from behind your desk.”
