It's All City Building w/ Mark Nickita

In this episode, we bring you a bit of city building banter with one of the best, Mark Nickita of Archive DS

We cover a lot of ground in this episode as we catch up with Mark Nickita, mainly because he is one very busy guy. He's a city commissioner and former mayor of Birmingham, MI, an architect and founder of the firm, Archive DS (short for Design Studio: he explains the name in detail in the episode), splits his time between Birmingham, Detroit, and Toronto, while maintaining an ambitious (prior to our current pandemic lockdown) international travel schedule.
