Can you tell us about your career?

What was your favorite class you took at DCP and why?

  • Second Year Fall Architecture Design 3 Studio. We watched Alfred Hitchcock’s “Rear Window” and created a plexi plate-massing project out of our interpretation of the film.

Who was your favorite professor at DCP and why?

  • Mike Compton, my final senior year studio professor. His first speech to our class was about the team dynamic in design – that each member has strengths and weaknesses. The most successful teams identify those points immediately and capitalize on each other’s strengths. That has stuck with me through my career.
