Q&A

  • Where did you grow up?  Bon Air, VA
  • A favorite project you have worked on?  It’s hard to pick a favorite, but one of my most memorable is Monticello High School in Charlottesville.  This project incorporated many low impact site design and sustainability features long before the advent of LEED and the general emphasis on “green” design that is common today. 
  • Favorite restaurant?  O’Toole’s (a great neighborhood restaurant and pub)
  • Favorite movie?  The Godfather
  • Your hero?  Has to be my parents, who always taught (and lived)  the values of hard work, faith and humility
