Principal at Bialosky + Partners Architects, an AIA Ohio Gold Medal office with locations in Cleveland, OH and NYC, NY.

I am a full-time designer, part-time professor, and occasional artist. I believe that design is about relationships - regardless of scale, setting, or subject, from disposable printed matter to enduring sustainable architecture - that all aspects of design are connected and everything has meaning if given the opportunity.
