Architecturally speaking I relate to the past and am inspired to preserve and learn from our history. I personally embrace Art Deco and International Styles and feel some of the best buildings ever designed and built came from these eras of Architectural Styles. On a local level, I am inspired by rural America, and strive to engage small communities in the challenge of preserving their past and embracing their future.
