Most of my experience, shaped in the field of healthcare and healthcare facilities, has been in problem solving – defining, collaborating, planning, communicating and implementing a change from a current set of relationships to a future set – and seeking solutions with clarity, simplicity and economy. 

Whether it involves spending time observing in an operating room or drawing in the studio - the search for something better is where I like to be.  Getting something better, for me, means using tools that engage clients:

  • Walking in their shoes - interview by observation
  • Interactive programming tools that offer alternative choices with feedback
  • Building stacking diagrams in Excel format that allow client developed models
  • Adjacency / separation diagrams for group mapping
  • Full size wallpaper elevations and floorplan mock-up
  • Live Autocad and SketchUp rapid space planning and building development and detailing
  • White board sketching and brainstorming

My experience in healthcare enterprises spans three decades and includes memory care facilities, ambulatory facilities, cancer care, diagnostic imaging, emergency services, material management, obstetric facilities, , pediatric facilities, rehabilitation facilities, specialized patient care units, intensive care units, surgical services, sterile processing, related support services - and the connections among all the parts that form the architecture and enterprise.
