How do you play your strengths to your advantage in your career: I am naturally very detail-oriented, focused, methodical and thorough—which you wouldn’t believe if you looked at my messy house. Those traits have been an asset in my career as an architect. I often surprise clients by noticing aspects of a design that others may not be aware of and by seeing the detail that is required to execute a great design. By approaching documenting in a methodical way and performing the required research completely, I am able to efficiently produce documents with minimal modifications, which my clients very much appreciate.
