About 

I am currently looking for a senior architect leadership position. With my extensive diverse experience, I believe that your employment ad for an Interior Project Architect position would support this goal.

My extensive experience allows me the ability to easily lead and contribute to the design excellence and success of a project. I can offer design and technical leadership with the building components and interior design solutions, including all engineering aspects of a facility design from Civil, Structural, MEP and Technology. I am well versed in current building codes and can competently resolve code related issues. One of my strengths is envisioning 3-D solutions to complex issues allowing me to foresee conflicts early on in the design, and resolve them before they become an issue later on or during construction; through creative, design conscious solutions; complementing the design intent, maintain moisture integrity and permanence of the facility.

I am a decidedly organized, motivated, design focused Architect having strong leadership and mentoring skills; driven on excellence and perfection. My qualifications and experience are extensive and diverse through numerous market sectors and project roles. Please review the attached Project Experience provided below, which identifies assigned project roles on each design.

Design is my passion. As a Photo Artist, Sculptor and Architect, my mantra embraces enhancing the quality of life through distinction. Quality, Excellence, Determination, Accuracy, and Perfection represent my character and work ethic. My work has been blessed being the recipient of several governmental and professional association design awards as well as having received of multiple awards as an artist through my tenure.

Presently a Senior Registered Architect and Principal of GOODSPEED ARCHITECTS, INC., a professional Architectural Design firm located in north Georgia; serving clients in Georgia, Florida and North Carolina; I have continued the goals and principles that I have maintained throughout my career centered on excellence through serving clients, placing their needs first. I am driven leader in my community and my profession, and give back my time and talents to where I live and prosper. I have had a very fulfilling architectural career over the last four decades. My most rewarding accomplishment has been the contributions to my community. I have been blessed with strong personal and professional relationships and the opportunities to contribute to the well-being of others.

In firm leadership I have held several titles including Owner/Principal, Partner, Vice President and Senior Associate. Most importantly though is my role as a mentor, nurturing younger professionals towards excellence. I have led Building Envelope Initiatives orchestrating envelope design professionals and establishing firm standards and protocols, limiting liability and improving the practice of Architecture.

As an Architect I have held numerous project leadership roles. Marketing, Client Management, Programming, Project Design; Project Architect, Project Manager, Technical Leader, LEED Envelope Commissioning Agent, Forensic Building Assessment Agent, and Construction Administrator to name a few. I have authored and negotiated contracts, specifications, and design concepts. My experience and building construction knowledge positions me as a QAQC Leader. My knowledge also extends to Current Building Codes and governmental guidelines as well as the ability to adequately plan a project design to eliminate change orders and project cost over runs through the quality Project Management practices.

I presently have homes in Blue Ridge, Georgia north of Atlanta, and Brandon, Florida about 12 miles east of Tampa. I am presently seeking a leadership position in a design focused Architectural Practice in an area of my profession that can take advantage of my experience, design focus and technical knowledge. I would like to contribute on a shared level, in a creative environment focused on excellence in Architecture, the Practice of Architecture, and the nurturing of young architects and graduates.

I have held my registration as an Architect in Georgia since 1988. While presently studying for my LEED Accreditation, I also enjoy life. The outdoors, hiking and fishing; having two bicycles are pleasant cleansing distractions to my career. I likewise enjoy photography, sporting clays, and Contemporary Art.

As a mentor and leader in my profession, I am presently involved with American Institute of Architecture Mentorship program for young Architects.
