About 

Early in his career Neil gained a respect for design and construction processes, the limitation of materials, and how we apply them. He enjoys all phases of the architectural process but has a love for seeing it built most of all.  Neil has a passion for details and figuring out how to overcome a design challenge. Neil believes that the Client and Contractor relationships can be as important as Material and Spatial relationships and that the Architect walks the line between the two gracefully by creating meaningful spaces for people’s lives.  Neil is looking for a new opportunity to share his talents and passions for architecture and construction.
