I am a licensed architect with 13+ years of experience working on a combination of custom and multi-family residential, mixed-use, religious architecture and adaptive re-use. I have worked as a sole-proprietor, job captain and project manager from Schematic Design through Construction Administration. Finally, I have a passion for sustainable construction, multi-family housing and public space.
