To me “connecting the dots” means….

Making reasonable and intelligent decisions. Issues and challenges are inevitable but, in order to reach our goal, we have to keep moving forward and make decisions; much like connecting dots where there is no clear order of where to connect next but a choice must be made to advance. Once everything is linked, a beautiful product/result emerges, and, for us Architects, it means our concept has transformed into reality and ready to positively impact the built environment.

When not at work you will find me…

Traveling, hiking, and enjoying outdoor activities.

I bet you didn’t know______ about me

My brothers and I formed a dance crew and performed at various events when we were young.

My favorite place in Nashville is…

Anywhere I could hang out with family and friends and have a great time.

The reason I wanted to become an Architect was…

When I was 13, my family and I migrated to the United States. Within the first several weeks, we traveled the country, and I was very intrigued by the beautiful structures I saw along the way. I decided then I wanted to become like the people responsible for shaping the built environment.
