Why is architecture important to you?
I believe it is a true expression of how I communicate with the world.
What project do you feel you have made the largest impact and how did you influence that project?
I think the Warfield Hall renovation probably represents the project that I had the most impact on. The exterior modifications reflect my understanding of working in the context of Miami University, while the interior represents my ability to mediate between modern influences and the traditional styles of this campus. While this project was a team effort, I feel that I provided a strong direction that lead to the final solution.
