My favorite project is Thorn Crown Chapel in Eureka Springs Arkansas, designed by E. Fay Jones. I was initially intrigued by the program for only using materials that could be carried by two people and only made of organic material to preserve the natural forest setting of the chapel. The fact that it an amazing building is the other reason its my favorite.
Favorite Thing About Your Job
I’ve always enjoyed designing and building. The fact that there is something physical completed with the work is satisfying to me. Being able to stand back and take a look at the finished building makes up for the often-challenging path traveled by many projects getting to that final goal.
Favorite Thing to Do
Walking around areas of Seattle I’ve never visited. Spending time with my kids before they grow and move out. At least twice a year take a trip to interesting places away from Seattle.
Three Things You Can’t Live Without
Coffee, time with family, the occasional sunshine break (especially during our long Seattle winters).
