Why the Hayes Design Group Architects? What keeps you here and motivated?
This is a very talented group of professionals.  The company is very team oriented and prides itself on the highest level of professionalism, integrity and client satisfaction.

What is your favorite aspect of practicing architecture?
Participating in the process of designing a building and watching it become a built reality, then watching people use and enjoy the space as it was intended.  There is nothing more gratifying.

Your favorite building design/example of architecture in the world?
Milan Cathedral (construction began in 1386) or Notre Dame (construction began in 1163).  They are both equally impressive to me.  If you’ve never seen these buildings in person, I highly recommend a trip to Europe and don’t forget your camera.  The level of stone carving detail that was designed into cathedrals of this time period is truly amazing.  These buildings and many others from this era are works of art!
