What is the value of AIA to you?
I find value in the AIA Seattle chapter more than AIA national. I especially appreciate AIA Seattle’s strength in advocacy and that’s what keeps me involved.
What project are you working on now?
A pretty cool furniture workshop and showroom that will ideally be net-zero (or nearly so) and constructed of cross laminated timber. We’ll see.
How do you explain what you do for a living?
I usually don’t have to since most people seem to have some idea of what architects do. In fact, many say they wanted to be an architect at some point in their lives.
