What are you passionate about?

I am passionate about being a good father, husband, person, and architect

If you could have lunch with someone famous (real or fictitious/from any time period), who would you choose and why?

J.R.R. Tolkien. I am not an advid fan, but I am blown away with how he created an entire world and languages for his books as well as how each is linked to each other either directly or indirectly. I love understanding the history of things from their beginnings to their end. Just fascinating.
