I got into Architecture to make a difference in people's lives and to participate in good stewardship of the Earth's resources. I studied at UT Austin participating in in the first Solar Decathlon in DC where UT placed 3rd in design. In practice, I try to incorporate sustainable principles or materials whenever possible. I love to travel and see the world's diversity. When I slow down in my old age, I may take up painting, for I take hundreds of photographs today! The play of light in photography is what originally brought me to Architecture. To me, designing with spaces defined by light is one of the most interesting aspects of architecture.
