Cornell University

What do you do at RMW?

Resident historian and anachronism.

What is your favorite building or space and why?

Monticello – it’s a practical experiment of an inquisitive mind.

What instrument do you play?

The architecture firm. It’s challenging, unpredictable, and glorious when in tune.

Firm’s softball pitcher. I hate to run and love to be in control.

What was your favorite meal last year?

A lunch at my desk of Coca Cola and animal crackers. It’s a sugar spike and stress relief (biting off the heads of the crackers).
