Favorite piece of Architecture and/or Architect? Why? Gaudi ‘s La Sagrada Familia in Barcelona and Richard Meiers’ Rachofsky House in Dallas. Two totally different styles that create such equally beautiful designs. Seeing all the history and ornate detailing contrast in La Sagrada is amazing and the Rachofsky house has always been one of my favorites – it’s great to have such an iconic piece of architecture in my own backyard.
If you could possess any superpower, any ONE of them, what would it be and why?
Wolverine’s keen animal senses, enhanced physical capabilities, powerful regenerative ability known as a healing factor and skeleton enhanced with Adamantium. What more could you ask for? He has it all….
You’ve just hit the jackpot and won the lottery, what’s the first thing you do?
Create music for enjoyment and/or film soundtracks. I love music and composing it – I only wish I had more time to put all the creations I have in my head into songs. I feel I am doing the world an injustice by not sharing these amazing sounds with everyone.
If you could travel back in time, what era would you travel to? Back in time long enough to have never known the computerized world we live in. Back when we worked less, focused more on quality of life, and were never in such a hurry to multitask. I feel the invention of the digital age has created an “I want it now” environment where we are always connected or expected to stay connected.
You have won a prize. The prize has two options, and you can choose either (but not both). The first option is a year in Europe with a monthly stipend of $2,000. The second option is 10 minutes on the moon. Which option do you select? Oh, gosh so easy. Year in Europe, with 2000.00 a month? That’s like living as a king if you backpack it, travel via Euro Rail, and stay in hostels. What a wonderful memory and experience that would be.
Who doesn’t love puppies? Do you have any pets? What are their names? Show us some photos! Yes, two cats and two dogs. Sasha, Patty Max, Charming and Violet.
If you’re not an only child, tell us about your siblings. Give us the good stuff: who’s your favorite?! Big sister – best part was always getting better versions of gifts after she would ask for them. When she got a jambox first, it was very simple and could only play cassette tapes and the radio. By the time I got my first jambox, the speakers detached, it had dual tape decks, a CD player and was way cooler looking too.
