Unequaled passion for architectural design. The potential that it has to both inspire and influence positive social change is something with which I am very interested. I have had the pleasure of working on large and small-scale projects ranging from retail, corporate interior build outs, to urban planning and site design. Passion for applying skills and abilities to the design of high-density residential/mixed - use projects has led me to my current position of owner principal of my own practice Arcain Design LLC.  



Arcain Design LLC, San Francisco, CA, US, Owner Principal

As of July 2023 I have made the leap into sole proprietorship taking all the knowledge and experience gained through my professional career and channeling them into a dynamic new architectural practice specializing in residential design. I specialize in all things residential from remodels, single family projects to large scale multi family housing projects. Currently I am in 100% business development mode. Feel free to visit my website and social media accounts to become acquainted with my design aesthetic and reach out should you be looking for a new project experience - led by a passionate, informed and efficient designer ready to positively impact the world one project at a time.
