The Bipolar Architect is a real life architect and his interest in architecture started at an early age when he saw the Charlotte skyline (he hadn’t been far in life at that point) and has evolved into an on-again, off-again creative outlet to a life-long passion. He enjoys modern design and residential projects but most of his experience is in commercial projects.
He also enjoys good tunes best heard on vinyl, cooking/grilling, discovering new food, documentaries, photography, intellectually stimulating films, gardening, reading historical non-fiction/memoir’s and comics. When it comes to design, he can be a teeny tiny bit of a perfectionist but it comes from a good place. Mostly it’s due to the feeling that’s produced when he gets to see the excitement on the face of the person he created a design for when they see the final product. He imagines that it’s the similar to feeling he gets when he walks into a beautifully designed building. He does take architecture very seriously but he does try to find ways to have fun while doing it whether it’s in the form of blasting some hip hop tunes so he can practice his shoulder dancing (because he can’t regular dance) or comparing simplicity of design to Wu-Tang while giving presentations.
