What brought you into the field of architecture?

I was always the kid that played with Legos and K’NEX building all kinds of contraptions. I was told from a young age that I should be an architect so I started taking drafting classes in High School which furthered my interest in architecture. I went to Texas A&M College of Architecture which taught me about design and confirmed that this is the field I want to be in.
