Occupation Architect-Builder
Location Madison, Florida, United States
Introduction First and forever, I am an architect and builder. Second, I am a lover of all things real and beautiful...my God, my wife, my children, architecture, music, painting, sculpture and nature. I am also a fanatic lover of great food and wine. Uncharacteristically for people of my ilk, I am also a rabid college football fan - always loyal to The Florida State Seminoles. I am a contrarian by nature and do not, generally, know when to shut up. As a practicing architect for thirty plus years, I have designed some pretty good buildings, many of which have never been built, usually the result of a lack of money or less than visionary clients. I love the serendepitous pleasure of traveling to places both familiar and unfamiliar.During my travels in the US and Europe, I have been inspired and appalled by cultures, ancient and modern. I tend to be a perfectionist when it comes to design. I become obsessed with the most mundane details in a building, which leads to fits of appoplectia for client and architect alike.... But in the end, the love you take is equal to the love you make. Ciao

Your people want to make a statue in your honor. What will it be made out of and what victory will it commemorate?

It will be made out of rusted steel. It will celebrate my ability to hang on to the coolest and most amazing woman on the planet and the serendipitous stroke of heavely genius which produced the two most incredible kids since procreation began!!!
