Was this your chosen profession and why: Yes, architecture requires the combination of the arts and sciences in a complex way that not many other fields do.  It requires an ability to balance and negotiate between multiple competing interests that are all valid. I enjoy the challenge of finding solutions to create that balance.

Favorite novel: The Fountainhead, I’m not a fan of Objectivism but it planted the seed in my mind about becoming an architect.

Hobbies: Hiking, golf, and anything that gets me outdoors or visiting new places.
