    “I really look at architecture and building as just another form of art in the community. The fact that buildings impact so many people, people that you're probably never going to meet, I think that you have a personal tie into everything that you touch, that you design, that you build. Then, you can, drive down the road and just point out to your kids, “You know, mom built that or mom was part of that project. There's that pride factor.”

    “...when I was new in my career, the expectation of me (and kind of often) was when you're being graded, when you're going through school, is to be perfect or to try to be perfect, 100% right? I don’t think that's how the real world works and you're going to make mistakes, but sometimes those mistakes often turn out to be the things that you can learn the most from and you result in growing the most. So don't be afraid to make a mistake.”

    “I think that architecture is one of the best arts that exists in the world because architecture can definitively include...sound and beauty and colors and shadows and light. At the end of the day, what you get is a final result that fills in all your emotions”.

    “It's a great movement. Jump into it and do it with passion and pursue whatever angle in green building you most love and are interested in. And don't be afraid that there's a formula that you have to stick to. That's the beauty of this movement. It's wide open. There's a lot of room for experimentation for exploring paradigm shifts that we've been talking about and haven't quite made yet. There is still a lot of room for growth and great fields. Dive right in. No fear.”

    “I think we need to look beyond individual buildings; into the patterns of development in the way neighborhoods are built. We have to find the way as architects, to not just work where the most resources are, but to also work where there aren't enough resources. We can unlock a lot of opportunity and a lot of great things through designs.”
