Silver Linings

Jun 30th, 2020

Halfway through 2020 … what a year so far. I know I’m not the first to say that; I’m sure you’ve heard that, or some version of it, from plenty of others. I think we can all agree, it’s been a tough six months on all sorts of levels. But I’m not here to be […]

Building Better Buildings

Mar 30th, 2020

The world is a very different place compared to when I last wrote this blog. Many of us are still adjusting to what’s become a new normal—at least for now—whether that means learning to work from home or simply adjusting to having to stay home. This is our world right now, and staying home is […]

Twenty Years, 240 Magazines, Thousands and Thousands of Pages

Feb 24th, 2020

“Most recent graduates don’t spend more than a couple years at a job.” That’s what my college communication professor said during my senior year. Basically, he explained, recent graduates get a job, try it on, gain some experience and move on. Does anyone truly expect their first place of employment to also be their last? […]

Blue January

Jan 31st, 2020

“January has been the longest year ever.” That was a quote that caught my eye recently while scrolling through social media. I have to admit, I agree. January is sort of like the month we love to hate … you’re just coming off all the excitement from the holidays and then nothing. At least for […]

Something in Common

Jul 29th, 2019

From movies to TV shows to concerts, the more we get to know celebrities the more we feel like we know them on a personal level. This can seem even more real, given all the true-life biography shows on TV these days. You can watch documentaries about all of your favorite actors or musicians and […]

Excellence in Architectural Glass

May 24th, 2019

Wherever you are in the world, you can probably find yourself in the nearby vicinity of some great architecture. I know that I like to look for unique details on buildings, especially older buildings. It’s often these features that make the building stand out. Speaking on a personal note, whenever glass is involved that makes […]

Never too Old to Learn

Feb 28th, 2019

I think the question “how was your day?” is probably one of the worst ones to ask a child. Why? Because probably a good 95 percent of the time the answer is “Good.” In the case of my own child, I’ve started to move away from these simple, one-word-answer questions, and have started to ask […]

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 […]

A New Kind of Revolution

Aug 31st, 2017

There’s a lot from the 1980s I hope doesn’t make a comeback. I can do without the big shoulder pads and the overabundance of Miami Vice-esque everything, from the clothes to the hairstyles to that beachy-white-pastel décor. Please, stay gone. But, on the other hand, I think the 1980s brought us some of the best […]

Block by Block

Jan 27th, 2017

This is not my first blog about LEGOs. As I’ve written before, my son is a LEGO aficionado. We’ve gone from Duplos (the big, chunky LEGOs) to the “starter” sets (fewer than 50 pieces or so) to the recently completed 1,156-piece Indominus Rex Jurassic World set. I was honored to help my son build this […]
