About 

I am an NCARB certified architect with over twenty two years experience in national and international architectural firms and running my own firm. Projects include boutique hotel, community center, office building, villa, golf clubhouse and resort community planning and design in California, Arizona, Hawaii, Utah, Oregon, Hong Kong and China. I graduated from Illinois Institute of Technology with a Master degree in Architecture. As an advocate of sustainable design principles, I maintain a balance of budget and building performance in every project.  Currently, I am heading up a small studio providing comprehensive services to integrate different trades within a given project.  Along my career path, I have given my time to community services including serving on the Board of the AIA in Arizona, mentorship in Taliesin West, Help Portrait and Habitat for Humanity.
