Designing a building and seeing it built is an essentially creative and hopeful act with largely positive effects and plays an important part in making the world a better place. It offers countless opportunities for combining utility and joy.

Originally an aspiring poet employed in editing and writing for a Washington, D.C. consulting firm, I decided to study architecture after becoming interested in energy conservation and renewable energy in the early eighties. I enjoy thinking about how a building can respond to its environment (natural or man-made) and engage with both climate and context.

I've been an architect for more than twenty-five years now and bring the same hope and desire to each new project. Let's make some positive change together.
