Talk to me about: Music. I taught myself how to play guitar long before there was YouTube so I’m no (insert your favorite guitarists’ name). I played in a couple of rock bands when I was younger, playing live shows at some bars in Albuquerque. Nowadays, I mostly just enjoy writing and recording my own stuff whenever I get a chance.
People would be surprised if they knew: I had a pet snake when I was younger — a Columbian Red-Tailed Boa. I got rid of it right before my daughter was born.
The best part of waking up is: Coffee. Why else would I get up?
What are you most passionate about in your profession: Standards. Our drawings are our deliverables, and it’s important to send out our best work every time.
