I knew I wanted to be an architect when: As a kid I would stay up all night to create miniature cities in my parent's basement with Legos, Hot Wheels, boxes, and whatever else I could find.
Favorite movie: Rocky V, I think? I just remember punching my fist in the air while standing up on my theatre seat during a scene when Rocky wins a bare knuckle street fight with his protege who let his success go to his head.
