My areas of architectural design experience include museum exhibition and museum building design, residential design, and urban planning. Much of my practical experience was gained in Los Angeles. I have entered a number of national and international design competitions. In addition to my work as a practitioner, I have taught architectural design, and carried out extensive academic research into ecclesiastical architecture.
