“Growing up in the Midwest, my family inspired my choice to become an architect. We were always working on projects: the bathroom, retiling the kitchen, putting in a patio in the backyard. Originally drawn to interior design, I started at Purdue in interior design, then transferred to Syracuse University for architecture. In class I’d ask, ‘can I move these walls?’ and the answer was ‘no, the architect will do that.’ That’s when I knew I wanted to be an architect. I could always do interior design as an architect, but I couldn’t go the other way.”
