“Where does the term “body architect” come from? I made it up to get hired for a job. I remember standing in the HR office being faced with the question “What are you?”. Wafting my hands in the air, scrambling for a description that packaged my background in ballet, architecture and fashion I plainly said, “I’m not just one thing, I’m a hybrid”. He gestured towards a white board with a matrix of job descriptions and explained he needed my job title in order to hire me, I left without the job. I called the my soon-to-be boss and said “Didn’t get the job, as I don’t know what I am.” He said “Go back and tell them you are a body architect”. I returned to HR the following week, knocked on the door and said “I am a body architect”… “Okay”, he said “Sign here, you start next week”.
