When did you know you wanted to be an architect/designer?
Probably around 5th or 6th grade after going to work with my dad a few times. He was a flooring installer, and seeing designers on his job sites pulling the spaces together at the end made me realize that’s what I wanted to do.
What would Spotify say is your most-played track?
Varies but there’s a lot of Bon Jovi scattered in there.
Where is your favorite travel destination?
Any lake in the New England area. The tranquility provides much needed contrast to the hustle of everyday city life.
What’s the best thing about working at Mancini Duffy?
It doesn’t feel like work. It’s like spending a day with your extended family, doing what you love to do.
Best advice you’ve ever received?
Don’t be afraid to try. The worst that can happen is you fail, but at least you won’t always wonder what could have happened.
What’s the most unusual item in your desk drawer?
An LED Christmas tree. It’s never too early for some holiday cheer.
