Alt32 Architecture | Design, Lexington, KY, US, Project Manager/Vice President Business Development

At Alt32 Architecture | Design, I serve as a project manager for multiple project types and act as Vice President of Business Development. In both roles, I am interested in new methods and means for us to create beautiful architecture and give our clients a different spatial experience

Alt32 is a firm of 11 people focused on design as a constant in creating meaningful spaces for our clients. Formerly Lucas/Schwering Architects, we have rebranded to become Alt32 in order to reshift the focus of what our firm's core interests are. We place a premium on research and design as a catalyst for the process over simply providing construction solutions.

GBBN Architects, Inc., Project Designer

GBBN Architects is regional consulting firm of 80 professionals located in Cincinnati, Lexington, Beijing and Louisville. With over 50 years of serving Arts & Entertainment, Healthcare, Development Mixed Use and Higher Education clients, GBBN is one of the most regarded firms in the region. I personally performed a multitude of tasks ranging from project design, project delivery, client relations and business development in the Louisville office and throughout the region. My 5 + years with GBBN allowed me to become deeply involved with many aspects of firm business prior to my resignation in September of 2009 to pursue my own practice, obtain further graduate education at the University of Pennsylvania and travel more extensively.
