Ripple recently added a new Architect and we are so excited! Meet Jeff:
Jeff joined us this month and has already been a wonderful asset to have around the office. I recently had an informal interview with Jeff both to get to know him better and so that you could get to know him too. Here is our Q and A in no particular order:
Q: What’s your architecture style?
A: I don’t have one particular style. Each design is responding to the particular site and environment.
Q: What’s your favorite color:
Q: Top three movies?
A: Dumb and Dumber, Blazing Saddles and Super Troopers…no…I don’t need three comedies…Shaun of the Dead. Wait, take out Blazing Saddles, add in 28 Days Later, no that’s 2 zombie movies. Apparently I like zombie and comedy movies.
Q: Favorite project you’ve ever worked on, if you have one?
A: Designing and building a yoga studio for my wife using reclaimed building materials.
Q: What’s your favorite city?
A: That’s a tough one.
Q: Top two?
A: Florence, Italy. Though I don’t know if I ever want to live there, but I’ve been there 3 or 4 times. San Francisco is pretty cool too.
Q: Favorite Season?
Q: Favorite thing to do in Seattle?
A: In Seattle, I think going down and walking to Carkeek park with my family.
Q: Favorite building or Architect?
A: Architect, no. I like a lot of architects for different reasons. I like a lot of Calatrava stuff. I love Sagrada Familia in Spain.
Q: Favorite Hobby?
A: I’ll make it generic – woodworking – furniture, carving, working with wood.
Q: What’s the best meal you’ve ever had?
A: Dinner with a friend’s family and sister in a small town. Everything was homemade….the wine, the bread…it was incredible. It was a few years ago in the middle of nowhere in Sicily, in a town called Villalbe.
