Scott Turnipseed

Name: Scott Turnipseed

Job: Architect/builder

Lives in: Eagle

In high school I was … A handful. I was about 1/3 jock, 1/3 decent student and 1/3 burnout.

If I was a T-shirt, I would be (fabric, color, any print?)… A cut off old tee shirt used for a surf shirt. That way you could be surfing all the time.

What’s the best thing about your town? The best thing about Eagle is the fact that you can mountain bike, fish, hunt, trail run, golf and ski all right out your door. It also doesn’t hurt that you can drive 30 minutes and see a kick butt band at the Vilar Center or the Ford Ampitheater and have a great fancy dinner at Sweet Basil.

The best thing about my job is .. . The people I get to work with. Most everyone in our office has worked together for the last 15 years so we are like a big, happy family and it’s a real privilege to get to work with all of the great craftsmen who build the houses that we design.

As a kid, I always … W anted to be outside goofing off.

If I could be any superhero, I’d be … A combination of Wonderdog and Scooby Doo. You gotta love a superhero whose tag line is “Have no fear Wonderdog is here!” And you gotta love a superhero who is afraid of ghosts and drives around with a couple of hippies in the Mystery Machine.

If I was given a million dollars, the first thing I’d buy is … A surf shack on the beach for my wife.
