is a platform for design thinking. Listening, attention, and human and environmental sensibilities shape my work and design approach. My practice emphasizes creative vision that supports community building, identity, and place.
Projects often involve working with complex environmental settings and multiple constituencies. Decisions favor climate action, the finite nature of resources, and social justice. Clarity and function inform the definition of beauty.
Travel, living in the heart of great cities and the influence of climate, culture, and context shaped my beliefs about architecture and urban design. The cities and dwellings of northern Africa and Mediterranean Europe gave insights into building and urban form shaped by regional forces and resources. These beliefs and experiences are the foundation of my professional career.
For twenty-five years, I was a partner with Sasaki Associates. Before joining Sasaki, I worked with other nationally known architects and with an international firm in Rome.
National and international awards, publications, and speaking engagements attest to leadership, design excellence, and memorable and sustainable projects. Clients include public and private organizations, colleges and universities, and individuals. My work is throughout the United States. Internationally, projects have taken me to Japan, China, Hong Kong, Singapore, Korea, Mexico, and Egypt.
