I enjoy live music & theater, movies, lectures, and going to art museums. I like to cook and have long evening meals with family & friends. As an architect, I am always "reading" buildings and their details on the inside and outside, as I think about my current design projects. I look forward to trips to see family in New York, Maine, and California. I am a gardener (mostly vegetables & flowers), a bike-rider, and a walker (for regular exercise). Although architects have to be practical about the "real world" in order to construct buildings, I'm really a hopeless romantic at heart.
