Before I went off to college I thought I should be a missionary to Africa. Coming from a family and subculture of people committed to the underserved it seemed the logical step for me. Go to Africa and build huts for the homeless there. … ever felt an idea seeming absolutely right in the context of culture running like fingernails on chalkboard against the grain of your soul? I didn’t have to visit Africa to realize very quickly there are uniquely gifted people cut from that cloth, and I was not one of them. I’m wildly energetic and very comfortable taking risks, so you’d think I’d have equipment for an adventurous life on the savannah. But I have a confession: I love clean hands and tidy rooms. I thrive in lush surroundings where nature and architecture collide in celebration of each other. I can’t help myself but to think up transcendant spaces filled with the splendor of whatever type of beauty suits the situation. And no matter where I travel on earth, I feel most at home, well … here at home - in the grandiose and broken USA. I am a melting pot Euro-mut American from the middle of this fine country living out loud the passions that bring people to life in their personal surroundings.
