Describe yourself in one word.
What motivates you?
The sense of satisfaction that comes from taking a concept from the world of paper and ink and translating that concept into the reality of brick and mortar. Nothing can compare to the feeling you get when you step back and look at a completed project and realize you have built something that began as someone's vision.
