He participates in code review and re-write committees, is an active member of the Texas ASLA code advisory group, and his mastery of complex city-permitting issues has made him one of the most sought after team members for urban design and development projects.
He has identified his spirit animal as the chupacabra, and when he’s not celebrating Alien Abduction Day, he can be found meticulously planning his next travel adventure, memorizing IATA airport codes, and adding to his (questionable) food collection.
