I love to draw--this is true in both architecture (which I'm definitely looking forward to getting back to) and what I do in my own time. In the four or so years of experience in practice I've had so far, I can say I'm enthusiastic about public space and those inevitable in-between moments that might make someone's day better. Details are important to me. There are times, even after so much exposure to the process, where I'll look down at a hand rail or an unusually thoughtful piece of door hardware and feel a sense of appreciation and wonder. I'd like to make things that elicit a similar reaction from others and am hopeful for the opportunity to do so.
