3 words that describe what I think makes a great architect: Creative, Passionate, Calm
I knew I wanted to be an architect when: I was little, I would watch my dad, who is also an architect, design and draw buildings out of his home office. Seeing his designs get built got me hooked!
My proudest achievement: Personally: losing 75 lbs and leading a healthier lifestyle. Professionally: becoming a licensed architect by passing my registration exams on the first try.
