I like to think it is my background in construction and my desire to be a team player. Like I said, my dad owned a construction company and it’s been a running joke that he “hated architects” because they were often egotistical, drew beautiful but not functional details, or would not listen to a builders ideas, etc. I really strive to be someone that both homeowners and builders alike are equally excited to work with me. I once asked a client why they chose to work with me and her answer was so simple…”you listened to me.” I couldn’t have been happier with that response…I strive to be an architect that listens to my clients and my vendors, suppliers, contractors and puts everyone’s knowledge into what I design.
