I have been a principal designer, construction administration troubleshooter, facilities manager, owner's rep, principal of my own niche practice, senior mentor, office administrator, and all-around good guy to have in the office. For the last twenty years I've focused on best practices, vetting other practices' work, while also - as time and opportunity presents itself - undertaking my own work.
