Please get in touch to discuss how I can be of service to you.
My Skillset
Principal level architecture leader, registered architect, managing, planning, developing and directing design goals and standards.
Specialties: Development consulting, Ground-up shell architecture, commercial interiors, hospitality and food service/restaurant, retail shopping center design, multi-family and many others. Small scale high-end residential work in “high design” modernist vocabulary.
My Passions
I am an accomplished ceramic artist, as well as extensive traveller, giving architectural tours around the world.

Nothing gets shortchanged, no matter the scale.
