About 

I have 25 years experience in the Architecture field.  I have worked on almost every type of building from Healthcare (hospitals, MOB's, clinics) to Commercial (office building, banks, etc.) to Retail (Meijer, mall fit-outs) to Residential (single & multi-family).

My experience includes all aspects of the Architectural practice:  Design, SD thru CD, Construction Administration, Client Contact, Consultant and Vendor Coordination.  I am well versed in AutoCAD and Revit platforms.  I am also very computer literate and able to learn new programs quickly.

I am actively involved with the Columbus Chapter of CSI (current Chapter President) and the Central Ohio Chapter of the USGBC (Communications Committee member).  I have been awarded the CSI Columbus Charter "58" Award twice for my service and devotion to the Chapter and promotion of CSI to the Central Ohio design & construction community.

I am also a member of Para-Dice Motorcycle Club (based in Grand Rapids, Michigan).  We raise funds for various charities (Grand Rapids Home for Vets, Lake County Senior Programs, etc.) through our various motorcycle runs and events.
