About 

Apparently, I was born to be an architect. Although I write and design all sorts of things like inventions, screenplays, movie sets and furniture but I am always drawn back to architecture. The allure of the sublime endeavor that is professional practice is so much more than the left brain processes of designing and detailing. While that is within my sphere of joy, its just means to an end. My enchantment resides in using my experience to deliver the total package of personal service for the client's benefit beyond their expectations. It requires the right brain processes that no school can teach and no computer program can render... I love it.
