I started into architecture as a kid thinking how exciting it would be to sit behind my desk and draw all day long. Upon graduation and entering into the work force I soon came to realize it was much more than that. What it was is truly what I enjoy, relationships. We as architects are the glue that holds a project together. We get to interact with multi-millionaires and the guys hanging the sheet rock. To be successful we need to be able to connect and interact with many personality types. We need to be able to pull the best out of each person. We need to lead the project to obtain the ideal solution. An architect must be a leader and a team player.

A project is only as successful as its team. Inspiring a team and understanding their abilities then pushing them sometimes past their capabilities brings about a great project. I would never ask of someone something that I personally would not do. If you are unable to play in a team atmosphere and you think your agenda is more important than anyone else, I would prefer working with someone else. Building a team, working toward a common goal, discovering each team members strengths and accomplishing something great brings joy to my work.

It is not my nature to ponder what is, but to dream about what could be. My vision for the future is always bright, I know change is possible and I will be a piece of that change. Never settle for what you have, always reach for what is next.
