About 

Hello.  I am an architect in the state of California with 14 years of experience working on many types of architectural and construction projects. I have had the opportunity to participate in residential, commercial, hospitality, institutional, and interior design projects of various sizes; from 350 unit apartment transit villages to 30-unit condominiums and single family homes.  Most recently I’ve worked on the development and design-build renovation of a 95 room historic hotel with a budget of 5 million+ in which I led various construction administration and design tasks.

I am drawn to work on projects that have a positive impact on the urban landscape and integrate and improve neighborhoods and communities.
