One on One with Denise:

Who is your favorite architect?

My favorite architect is Louis Kahn. An oldie, but a goodie. What inspires me is his elegant lines and simplicity of materials.

What do you like to do in your free time?

I really enjoy anything outdoors, especially hiking, wake surfing and skiing with my family.

Did you have a nickname as a child?

When I was young, I had a grease school teacher that used to called me Little Orr, so that stuck through high school. He was always the announcer for our local parades and made it a point to shout it out when I walked by. Mesa had two parades every year :)
