In this economic downturn, name one thing you have done to weather the tough times. Maintaining a focus on optimism and identifying solutions. Connecting with and drawing inspiration from likeminded people and personal heroes.
If you weren't a designer, what would you be? An oceanographer/adventurer (think Cousteau).
If you could spend 15 minutes talking to any person, living or dead, who would it be and why? I'd spend it with my son.
If you could work for anyone, a client or on a project, what would it be? I'd like to be the U.S. Ambassador to Sweden or Tokyo. There are a lot of green infrastructure advancements in both countries that I'd like to bring to the U.S. If those two countries were unavailable, I'd settle for Monte Carlo.
