Allow me to introduce myself as an experienced, licensed Architect skilled in design
services and project management. Recently, I have successfully held a position as a Project
Architect with a focus on construction administration. Prior to becoming a licensed Architect in
Colorado, I worked for years in many aspects of construction and construction management,
which provided me with a strong, first-hand understanding of how to effectively turn designs
Currently, my goal is to begin working with a firm that can use my existing Architectural and
managerial skills, while allowing me to grow as a practicing Architect.
My Architectural philosophy revolves around the concept of boundaries. It is my belief that the
human psyche occupies a place that is defined by its emotional boundaries. The built
environment is the most prominent physical outgrowth of this basic human condition. As
Architects, we participate in the precept that responsibly defines the boundaries of that place.
This is my endeavor, to further a responsible dialog where our built environment intertwines
with our psyche, as it has for centuries.
