I keep a guitar in my office for inspiration because I believe there is an important connection between architecture and music. My passion is planning and design. I have wanted to be an architect since I was 12, curiously the same time I picked up a guitar. I also enjoy supporting the community by volunteering for the boards of Great Falls Development Authority, Neighborworks Great Falls and Paris Gibson Square Museum of Art. One of my favorite guitarists–Albert Cummings says in his music, “The blues make me feel so good”. So does skiing, tennis, golf and my family.
