What are you working on? "My day jobω I am working on projects at the airport and urban housing in neighborhoods and downtown. I am also working on finding a home for Ko Thi Dance company."

How does the market look to you? "The urban housing market is still strong, riding the momentum of the last five years. It seems like every empty parcel and old building has new found potential. The firm has never been busier than we are right now."

What was the best deal you’ve ever been involved in? “The most satisfying projects for me personally have been designing places for the arts; not the most profitable but certainly the most rewarding.”

What was the funniest moment of your career? “Perhaps the most fun and the most surprising aspects of my career have been working with artists on our projects; Mary Miss on the Third Ward Riverwalk, Carlos Alves on Concourse C at Mitchell International Airport and Teresa Agnew at the Sharon Lynne Wilson Center. The artists we have worked with have added humor and an element of surprise to the creative process."
