About 

I am an experienced project manager with well over 70 completed projects in the private and public sectors.  I have an innate passion for exceptional design in architecture and I am continually expanding my abilities to create awe inspiring buildings.  I am passionate about my work when designing  buildings that envelop its visitors with a sense of comfort  in a creative design that permeates luxury and unique style.  I relate designing buildings to musical classical masterpieces that transcend time or a familiar song that transport you to a private world of your own elevating you to a time of pure bliss.  We have all felt that at some point or another.  In the same way I believe architecture should be designed with impeccable taste, exceptional creativity and most of all joy.

That said - I have never worked a day in my life.
