What attracted you to join the CUBE 3 team?
Nothing personal to my highly talented and creative teammates BUT I honestly never imagined myself being happy working for an architectural firm. However, from the early days I knew Nik and Brian wanted to build a different design firm. One that would make an exciting impact as a refreshing change to the industry. This certainly aligned with my business approach. I must say that this client first, never settle, entrepreneurial spirit has not diminished.
What’s a lesson you have learned that has most benefitted you in your career?
Celebrate the wins – Learn from the losses – Never burn bridges

How did you get here? What were you doing before, and what made you decide to go into Business Development?
I was a founding partner in a Boston/MEP engineering firm. In those days Nik and I chased a lot of projects together, first at ADD Inc and then at CUBE 3. Not sure if Nik remembers but at times we would meet for lunch at a restaurant called Atasca around the corner from his ADD Inc office (very good Portuguese food). One day he begins to tell me he is confidentiality thinking of leaving and starting his own firm. I remember trying to talk him out of it. 3 years later I called to ask if we could meet for lunch in Lawrence. The rest is history…
