I am a registered professional with over 30 years of experience and a unique history of work in three related areas: Architecture, General Contracting, and Real Estate Development.  I have been involved in ALL aspects of project delivery from conceptual development through punch-listing the final product, in a variety of delivery types. I have a history of management and leadership including analysis of project financial status, budgeting, tracking and scheduling, and producing project status reports.  I am an advocate of sustainable design and delivery methods and have assisted in the construction of multiple LEED certified buildings. I am familiar with several project management software systems and the use of electronic media to accomplish traditional design and construction procedures in a more efficient manner.
