What is the value of AIA to you?
Supports our professional practice through education, training, best practices, contracts and advocacy.
What relationships have you created?
With a large number of folks in the local real estate community including developers, jurisdictions, general contractors, consultants and other architects in the area.
What interested you about being on the AIA Seattle Board of Directors?
Opportunity to share experiences and learn from my colleagues in the profession to better our standing in the local real estate and construction industry.
What project are you working on now?
Altitude Tower, a 50 story mixed use tower including hotel and residential in downtown Seattle and a large mixed use project in Tukwila.
How do you explain what you do for a living?
Most folks already have a perception of what an architect does; I talk a lot about the myriad of challenges we face with clients, jurisdictions, contractors, etc. and the importance of forming relationships to deliver a project from vision to concept to reality and coming out the other end with mutual trust and respect for each other and looking forward to working together on the next project.
