I spent the early part of my creative life pursuing music.  After working various side jobs in construction, I realized the world of designing and building was where I wanted to be.  My past experiences have taught me about working on musical instruments, houses, stagecraft, lighting, and many things in-between.  The discrete fields have all informed the way I think about design, and how to solve problems.

I currently live in Austin, Texas with my wonder wife Gayle.  Beyond architecture, I enjoy biking, obstacle courses, NPR, and restoring vintage bicycles.
