Don is a good, honest guy who builds a quality product. That was my impression initially, and it was reinforced by the experience of working with him. He’s creative and understands architecture. If you have a complex project, you need someone smart who understands every element. Don knows what he’s doing, understands what I want, and isn’t afraid to tell me if my idea is going to be too expensive, not doable, or not come out the way I wanted it to come out. Don’s team was always good at listening to what we wanted, making suggestions when we were going astray, and pretty much getting done what we wanted to get done. But the main benefit I got from working with Don was high-quality communication. My vision and his interpretation of what I wanted to get done were one. We were both on the same page. It was a good collaborative effort.
