Keith Howard Lesser, AIASenior Technical Director
When did you know you wanted to be a designer?
I’ve wanted to be an architect since my junior year of high school.
Where are you from?
I was born in New York but grew up in Teaneck, New Jersey.
What’s the biggest highlight of your career?
Working on the TSX Broadway project here at Mancini is great. It’s the biggest and most challenging project I’ve ever worked on in my 30-plus years of experience. Frank Lloyd Wright was famously asked what his favorite project was. He answered “The one I’m working on,” and I feel the same way!
Do you have any hidden talents?
I’m a Rock and Blues guitarist and am a finish carpenter. I also love to work on my garden.
What is something you collect?
I collect shot glasses from every place I’ve traveled to.
What’s one accomplishment you’re most proud of?
My two daughters have grown into some pretty awesome adults.
