About 

Over the course of my architecture career, I have acquired broad experience with a diverse range of
building types, from single-family houses to large-scale retail and transportation projects. I have developed particular expertise in preservation/adaptive use, multi-family housing and institutional/
healthcare projects. I have a proven track record of designing and managing large, complex projects,
from concept through construction, for local and national clients. I have strong collaboration and team building skills and have administered large construction projects from Atlanta to Boston.

For many years, I have been an advocate for sustainable design and have pursued a specific interest
in improving building envelope performance.

I approach design with an understanding and appreciation of historic architectural form combined
with a pragmatic desire to find an appropriate solution within the budget. I strive toward clarity in
the expression of purpose with a reflection of context to create buildings and environments that make
sense to the people who see and use them.

I am a registered architect in Washington State and the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania.
