We asked Erick about his passion for architecture. Read on for our interview-

What drew you to architecture as a career?

Qualitatively, my father is an artist, and I was exposed to many forms of art as a child. Through his immense library I discovered ink hand drawings by architects – some famous, others unknown. I felt a pull to a profession that considered itself as an art. Quantitatively, I found enjoyment in the science of building and fascination of how the laws of thermodynamics interact with the art of architecture.

What’s your favorite (or most unique) project you’ve worked on?

The electrical charging stations associated with the travel plazas were the most interesting type of project due to the immense complexity of the sites and the program elements involved.

What do you do for fun – Any hobbies or special interests?

When not on “Dad Time”, I enjoy 3D printing, continuing to learn how to program in Python, and finding ways to leverage AI for our profession.

Are you involved in the community?

I volunteered to serve in the US Navy for eight years. During that time, I was deployed to Afghanistan and Japan, with time spent in other countries and parts of the United States.
