I have recently completed a 12 month special service contract with CVS Health and will be returning to the Greater New Orleans area. It is my hope to find work within a firm that has a need for a Principal Level Architect/Manager that can contribute to both Marketing Effort as well as Project Development.

.I have decades of experience that stretch across North and Central America as well as International locations. This includes virtually every Building Type and Occupancy.

It is not my intent to seek a principal position within an office, but I do offer the competence and experience of one. At this point in my career I am far more interested in the quality of work and workplace culture than I am the compensation package. Furthermore I have a passion for mentoring and have participated in the NCARB intern development program for years. A large part of my contribution in that regard is founded in my own registration history, as I am intimately familiar with licensing requirements (both US and International), as well as the Architectural Registration Exam; having been a member of the NCARB and the AIA for my entire career.

After over 30 years of experience in Design and Construction, throughout North and Central America, the Pacific Rim and Puerto Rico, which has involved almost every Building Type and Occupancy, I feel that I can offer Management and Project Support on any scale needed. I also believe that I can contribute significantly to an office’s Marketing and Development.

As an Architect, Project Manager, Development Manager and Construction Executive I have served as a Principal within my own firm and other privately held companies, as well as performed these same functions within the corporate structure of several Fortune 500 corporations. Having spent roughly one half of my career in the corporate world and the other half in private practice I also hold a unique perspective of how the two interact most successfully.  

My design and communication skills are rooted in the primary Architectural disciplines that predate AutoCAD. The ability to clearly delineate concepts through hand graphics, in both the Conceptual sketches and Design Development stages of a project, has always served my clients understanding of how a design satisfies their program needs. I have always carried these abilities forward through my career even as I quickly embraced the value of CAD skills and acquired them throughout my career.

I have always been extremely grateful for the opportunities and satisfaction that has come from a career in Architecture, and want to continue in this profession for many years to come.
