About the Host, Quentin
Harvard graduate, 30 yr. licensed architect, mostly luxury single family home commissions, with a penchant for green, sustainable design methodologies, I build custom furniture, am in the process of developing prefabrication vacation homes and many other projects with broad design interests. Fine antiques, art and a penchant for reading about new technologies fuel my design interests and love of travel. Life is short and uncertain at best, eat dessert first! I am confounded by a very high aesthetic appreciation of nature, of built-form and of future potential.
As a host I enjoy sharing those things which are meaningful with our social interaction opening up new doors to flavor exciting experiences and shared laughter.
I love to build beautiful things, address difficult design solutions, appreciate the fine arts, automotive technology, TV documentaries, books, stories, frozen Mint Milano cookies, intelligent people and defining difficult challenges. If not now, when?
