I am a task oriented and creative architectural project manager interested in working with a team of planning and building design professionals to develop inovative solutions for the built environment and the client.  I enjoy problem solving and designing tools to assist with the creative problem solving process along with the project team.  I believe communication is key to making any diverse group of people work well with each other as designers and focusing on the clients' needs through their continued envolvement in the design process.
