Friday, June 1st, 2012

This year’s convention can be easily summed up in three words for me… Virtual becomes Reality. I have become fairly active in the online AEC community over the past couple of years.

2012 Goals: The Visual Edition

Wednesday, January 11th, 2012

Well there was some technical difficulties when I made my last post. My WordPress and new web host were not getting along. And my web team had some work to do…so I did not get to post any photos or visual aids in my New Year’s post.  So now that balance has been restored I […]


The Time is Upon Us.

Tuesday, January 3rd, 2012

So we have begun yet another year. I find that I always become strangely nostalgic and emotional at this time of year. Before I had children, I would sit and watch a multitude of end of the year retrospectives. This always made me emotional. As I look back over the previous year, I can only […]

    Architect Leaders

    Leadership is the capacity to translate vision into reality. —Warren Bennis This quote rings true to me when I begin to think about Architects as leaders. This is something that is part of the essence of any architect; our common ground. We all do this activity on a daily basis for every project. Yet the strong […]


    Arch Postit SMALL

    A New Idea = ABPi

    OK. So I have decided to start a new little project. A side project if you will. (As if I do not have enough stuff going at the moment!)
