About 

I like to help guide into existence those projects which focus on high-performance, innovation,
energy-efficiency, and design excellence.  To learn from past achievements, disparate influences, and current technologies and apply them in order to create spaces and places of varying scales which are truly sustainable, relevant, and moving.
