What’s your favorite thing about your job?
“Taking a client’s idea and dream and making it a reality.”

How did you choose your profession?
“Like most architects, Legos were a big influence on me as a little kid. I’ve always loved making my own ideas come to life, but I didn’t realize what I wanted to be until I got to college.”

What are your hobbies outside of work?
“Having fun with my family, traveling the world, and working on random renovations to make my ‘tiny’ house more usable and enjoyable.”

How are you involved in the community? Are you passionate about any organizations/charities?
“I run the largest kickball league in the KC Metro that supports Big Brothers Big Sisters and Sporting KC’s Victory Project.”

What’s the best advice you have ever received?
“1. Hold my beer and watch this.

 2. It’s time to leave when you’re no longer having fun.”

Real talk… Royals or Cardinals?
“Royals of course. I don’t know who that other team is.”
