It's part of who I am and the filter I see life through. In addition to being an architect, I'm also a writer and a painter. Oil paint- ing is a great passion of mine. It informs my design and design thinking and helps me to push boundaries. One challenge: Adaptive reuse projects. Simply finding a location that isn't riddled with EPA nightmares due to prior occupancies is tough enough.

It's a revolutionary work of art. As designers, we're in the storytelling business, and few do it better than the artists who create iconic movies.
