Why did you choose this career?
I wanted to make a difference in the built environment to contribute to the quality of life of people in Fort Worth, North Texas, and beyond. I started in architecture but discovered planning and chose to design more than a single building or site and affect the larger community.
What has been your favorite project to work on during your career?
Walsh Ranch. The opportunity to work for an extended period on a project of its size, scope, and diversity in its planning stages was important. This early planning set the foundation for multiple quality neighborhoods in west Fort Worth.
What do you do in your spare time? Do you have any interesting hobbies?
Racquetball is at the top of the list, along with family (wife, daughters, sons-in-law, and grandchildren). I also enjoy playing Bridge with long-time scouting friends.
What’s the best gift you’ve ever received?
The guidance of the scoutmasters and assistant scouters of my Boy Scout troop provided good male role models for me after my father passed away at an early age.
What is the most daring thing you've ever done?
I am conservative on risk-taking, but I guess skiing the black diamond slopes or kayaking whitewater rapids.
