An Interview with Kim Tuttle

Do any singers inspire you?

"Billie Holiday and Frank Sinatra."

Why did you choose Norwich?

"I came to Norwich because it was the only school in New England (at the time) that offered a Master's Degree in Architecture in five years. I'm an art minor, but I would have preferred a music minor if Norwich offered it, but the program only offers two courses -- a piano course and music appreciation."

Your sister is also a student here?

"Yes. Sarah is a sophomore nursing student."

Where did you get your musical talent?

"From my mom, Sue Tuttle. She's a singer, too, and musically active in her community."

Do you play any instruments?

"Yes. The flute, saxophone and French horn, which I love ... it sounds magnificent and royal. I think horns rise above all others; it's the one instrument that gives me chills when I hear it."

What is your motto?

"Life would be boring without music."

Why do you want to be an architect?

"I love design. It's a great feeling to see something on paper actually get realized in construction. One of the projects I worked on this summer is under construction right now in Bangor. It's an old Burger King that's being converted to a Chinese restaurant."
