Licensed Architect with MBA hungry to quickly grow into a leadership role at a reputable architecture firm during this dynamic time. New technology (e.g., BIM) is changing traditional design and production processes. New project delivery methods (e.g., IPD) are changing the nature of the relationships between architects, builders, and clients. A down economy is forcing us to rethink almost everything. Some firms will be the agents of change and some will be victims of change. I have the experience, professional network, skills, education, instinct, and desire necessary to be an agent of change. I will be an important part of the future success of an architecture firm.
