About 

I have been passionately interested in Architectural design since high school and have practiced in and out of professional firms, as well as, freelance for the last 40 years. I have also been fortunate to have been given the opportunity to learn many different types of related engineering deciplines within the industry.

My passion is in Architecture. I continue to design for freelance, but my desire is to contribute to a successful firm who appreciates the talent I have been given.

On a personal level, I am an outgoing, fun, and strong individual who lives well and holds true to family, friends, and homelife. I enjoy many social events, and hobbies, including outdoor living, games, art and theater. I spend time painting, drawing, sketching, and managing my personal art studio website. www.boneheadstudios.net.
