Ihave twenty-five years of experience in all phases of the project delivery process – from the conceptual sketch to the final interior design touches. I have worked on residential projects throughout my career while also focusing on larger commercial, industrial and transportation buildings.
For the past five years I have been working exclusively on residential work. I recently built an addition to my office and was reintroduced to the myriad details that all residential contractors must address, and the importance of the work of the architect in making the construction phase not only manageable, but enjoyable. Most of life's great challenges can be met successfully if they are served up in manageable tasks that are clearly defined. Building a new home or adding space to an existing home is a great challenge. High quality architectural services can make it an inspirational adventure.

I began my career as an architect just after high school in the office of the great Northwest residential architect Burr Richards, and studied with superb residential architects as an undergraduate at the University of Washington, most notably, Tom Bosworth and Wendell Lovett. There were more than a few masters of residential design teaching at Harvard during my three and a half years at the Graduate School of Design – Richard Meier, Charles Gwathmey, Michael Graves, Peter Eisenman and several others not quite so famous but equally talented.
