5. What is your dream vacation?

Slowly exploring a city I’ve never been to.

6. What’s your favorite part of working in the AEC (Architecture, Engineering, Construction) industry?

I feel that I get to work with the brightest people. I also really like solving problems and overcoming challenges, and the AEC industry supplies me with opportunities to do both.

7. If you weren’t a Senior Project Coordinator, what would you be doing?

I would be a full-time artist and spend my time taking trips to interesting places so I could paint the architecture and people there.

8. If you could choose your super power, what would you choose?

Read people’s minds… How else do you figure them out?

Pink Floyd. I also love live music of all kinds.

10. What inspires you?

People who master something so well that it seems impossible.

Dancing, because it feels so desperately awkward to me. I admire people who are natural at it.

I’ve done all kinds of art in my life and found out that I really love watercolor. I’m really good at it too 🙂

13. What is one word you would use to describe yourself and why?

Intellectual, because I value knowledge and put a lot of thought into everything I do.

14. Where would you choose to live: by the ocean, in the mountains, or in the woods?

2nd Saturday Art Walk.
