"Don't tell me you need a bridge....Show me the canyon" (Giuseppe Delena). 
Understand the clients need not by the project they describe but through the problem to be solved. 

Assemble the best project team with all the resources to provide the most elegant, sustainable & cost effective solution to exceed the clients needs. 

Lead the project team through the role of Master Builder...Listener, Strategist, Analyzer, Conductor, Resource......Visionary.

I have effectively served clients through every role within the project team with a proven track record of building lasting client relationships, exceeding client expectations and creating more sustainable built environments that ultimately enhance the user experience. Successfully Fusing Life + Architecture.
