Rod Abid has been in love with tall buildings his entire life. Unfortunately he grew up in St Louis, where the Gateway Arch defines building height. After a 30-year career in public radio - where he did everything from war zone reporting to producing “Wait Wait...Don’t Tell Me” - he is very happy to be part of the CTBUH Editorial Board. Rod lives in Chicago which, of course, is defined greatly by its tall buildings.
