I was on tour with my band and had just turned 30 and kind of had that "where's my life headed?" moment, given the rate at which my musical career was moving. I began to wonder what opportunities were out there for me to be creative, but to actually have a career as well.
A friend of mine had given me a copy of a book called The Fountainhead by Ayn Rand because she thought that architecture was an interesting career. So while I was on tour I started reading this book, and it totally clicked that architecture could be a creative field.
