Why did I write this book?

Because together we can.

I wrote this book because I believe that if we all put our heads and hands together, we can change the architecture, engineering, and construction (AEC) industry for the good of people and the planet. In short, I wrote this book because I believe in the power of ‘WE.’ Together, we can change how we design and build our industry for the better by creating a sustainable, diverse, inclusive, and equitable planet for us all to live on.
