Gotham Gets Glassy

Jun 29th, 2018

From the rooftop bars to the sidewalks below, you look up, down and all around in New York and you’ll see glass. Glass towers are on the rise, making the Big Apple the perfect spot for the American Institute of Architects’ (AIA) Conference on Architecture. The annual expo took place last week at the Javits […]

London Calling

May 31st, 2018

If someone ever asks you if you can go to London, don’t hesitate in responding yes. Yes, if you have the opportunity, you can and should go to London, even if it’s just a whirlwind trip. From the history to the culture to the architecture and glass, there’s plenty to see and do. I first […]

Friends, Wine and Glass

May 4th, 2018

I have been blessed with an uncanny memory. I remember details about past issues of USGlass, which issue an article was in—even ones that are several years old, as well as trips I’ve taken and the many places I’ve been. My first trip to Texas was going to the old Contract Glaziers Educational Conference, which […]

A City So Nice, They Named it Twice

Mar 30th, 2018

“New York, New York. City so nice they named it twice. Manhattan is the other name.” If you’re a fan of NBC’s The Office, you might recall that quote goes to none other than “World’s Greatest Boss” Michael Scott. I loved that show and could watch it over and over; and yes, sometimes (I’m not […]

Extreme Sports

Feb 14th, 2018

Whether it’s summer or winter, watching the Olympic Games is one of my favorite things to do. No matter the sport, you have to admire the hard work, dedication and determination of these athletes. I’m nothing short of amazed by their talents—extreme talents in some cases. So, it was no surprise that I sat there […]

A Year in Pictures

Dec 28th, 2017

Here we are, saying good-bye to 2017 and hello to 2018. One of the things I like to do around this time is take a look back on some of my favorite memories of the past year. And I can’t think of a better way to do than to scroll through the photos on my […]

2017’s Defining Moments

Dec 1st, 2017

What a year. That’s what comes to mind as I sit here and think about 2017. What a year. There has been so much negativity and disturbing news, particularly of late with account after account of sexual harassment cases. I mean, if you’ve ever had aspirations of making it big in Hollywood, now may be […]

New York State of Mind

Oct 26th, 2017

You’d be hard pressed to find anyone who would disagree that New York is one of the best cities for architecture. Just look at some of the impressive buildings—from the classic art deco designs of the Chrysler Building and the Empire State Building to the modern aesthetics of the Hearst Tower’s diagrid façade and the […]

Women in the Glass Industry

Oct 20th, 2017

It’s amazing how much you can learn about a person when you take the time to listen to what they have to say. Where do they work? What do they do? Hobbies? Best Experiences? Worst? I can tell you from experience, I had the best time reading all of the nominations we received for the […]

From the Outside In

Sep 22nd, 2017

By all accounts, GlassBuild 2017, which took place last week in Atlanta, will not be forgotten. Not because of what happened within the Georgia World Congress Center, but because of what happened outside the days prior … leading to what ultimately didn’t happen inside. Given Hurricane Irma was barreling its way north, I was surprised […]
