What was your most notable project in 2017? I was honored to be asked to join a team responsible for orchestrating the largest project completed by the University of Notre Dame and SLAM. After guiding many visioning sessions with university administration and key stakeholders, a blend of academics, research, student life, and hospitality would make up the three new buildings surrounding the iconic Notre Dame Stadium. Subsequently, I led a team of programmers who devised a space plan to reunite Anthropology and Psychology Departments, scattered in several locations, to a new home at Campus Crossroads that celebrates their many distinct discoveries, while creating scientists of the future.
