Tell Us More

Which project are you most proud to have been a part of, and why?

I have only done two projects so far, I’m on my third now, but they have all been great. However, I would have to say my second project for a big-name grocer was the one I am the proudest of because that was the first one where I was a team lead, and it ran pretty smoothly.


If you weren’t an architect, what would you be doing?

I would either be a professional gamer, a songwriter and producer, or a designer of some sort.


What would you go back and tell your 22-year-old self?

Not to be so timid. Go live life, and stay in the gym.


You’ve got one day in Pittsburgh. What do you do?

Go downtown for the arts festival.


Any final words?

To sum up my personality and interests, I am a hodgepodge of things that you wouldn’t think go together. I am a Black adult man that likes video games, anime, comic books, movies, and music, and who is also blissfully married and loves being a dad. In short, I am pretty weird, but I love it!
