q: What drew you to architecture as a profession?
a: My mom. She was a talented artist and would sit my brother, sister, and, I down with a pencil and paper to keep us entertained. My brother and sister were gifted with still life drawings but I tended to draw buildings and houses. I believe that’s why I still prefer to draw instead of using a computer. Seeing mansions and country homes always intrigued me; I love the history contained in them. Touching a stair rail still in place that was built and installed in 1880 thrills me.
