Why did you choose this field?
My grandfather was a carpenter and I always loved being on construction sites as a child. I knew I wanted to be involved in building. I also developed a love of the creative arts. Architecture was the perfect marriage of these two interests.
When it comes time to brainstorm and collaborate around the table, what snack do you bring?
Delicious cured meat (Salami Toscana), cheese (Piave Vecchio), Kalamata olives, and a bottle of Barco Reale di Capezzana (2012).
