What made you want to become an Architect?

Art and architecture have always been a prominent element throughout my entire life.  Having parents studying fine art and architecture as a boy, I attended university with them when childcare fell short. I experienced the smells and passions of the art annex and the intensity of architecture studio (granted while playing with cast aside models).

Although I searched different paths, the practice of Architecture is what came naturally.  There is an amazing gratification solving the complications in the puzzle that comprises a structure.  On so many levels, the dynamics of the puzzle of architecture is fascinating.  We must fit together relationships between aesthetics and people, people and spaces, spaces and nature, nature and materials, materials and science, and all of those with each other.  Additionally, we overlay other influences such as zoning, structure, mechanics, life safety and electronics.

The answer to the question is, that I chose architecture as a career, because I found it was where I got the most gratification in solving complex intricacies.

What made you want to become an Architect?

I’ve always possessed an innate passion for blending art, science, and precise calculations into architectural wonders. Drawing, mathematics, and science have been my compass on this exhilarating journey of creation.

Throughout my formative years, spanning middle school to high school, I eagerly immersed myself in drafting programs—both traditional and digital. The satisfaction of transforming abstract concepts into tangible blueprints fueled my desire to craft exceptional architectural designs.

At a tender age, my father, a skilled carpenter, became my mentor. Together, we ventured into diverse construction projects, allowing me to witness the creation of unique spaces. This early exposure instilled in me a profound longing to craft spaces that resonate with a sense of uniqueness and belonging.

My aspiration is to conceive and manifest spaces that speak to the soul, where every line and curve tells a narrative waiting to be embraced. I envision creating environments where you step in and instantly become part of something extraordinary.

What was the best advice you ever received?

The best advice given to me is, “Do what you love, and the rest will fall into place.” I have navigated my educational journey with a passion for merging art, design, and technical expertise. Ever since I was young, the relationship of art and design has been an intrinsic part of my life, shaping my worldview and influencing my choices. As I progressed through high school, the technical facet of design emerged as a compelling force in my creative landscape.

Architecture emerged as a new space for experimentation —a sublime equilibrium between the artistic and technical dimensions of design. This discipline became not merely a career path but a canvas where my creativity meets the precision of technical intricacies. Through this lens, I’ve realized you have the power to redefine spaces, transcend conventional boundaries, and create environments that generates a connection with each of its inhabitants.

For me, Architecture is so much more than designing buildings of different disciplines, rather architecture is a form where you push the boundaries of what space can be. Each project becomes an opportunity to craft spaces that not only captivate the senses but also stand as testaments to the seamless fusion of artistic vision.

Hola mis amigas!

My motto in life has always been, be good to yourself, be good to others, always follow your dreams, and everything else will fall into place.

Following that motto has transported me around the world. With years spent as a flight attendant I have had the opportunity to travel to many amazing destinations providing a solid foundation and appreciation for the culture, food, and art of the world. Traveling provides an education in compassion and appreciation that I would (highly) recommend for everyone!

Along the way I had opportunities to work in a corporate capacity for Jet Blue and Apple where I learned the valuable skills of management, accounting, and human resources.

Moving out to the east end provided new opportunities to take my skills to the very important field of Architecture. The chance to be part of a team that is helping shape the creative architectural landscape of the east end is truly an honor. We are so lucky out here in the Hampton’s that the norm is not the norm, rather it is the creative, the innovative, and the beautiful, that we strive to leave as our legacy in our little corner of the world.
