Licensed Architect in California and Licensed Residential Designer in Nevada.

Bachelor of Arts in Architecture, University of New Mexico, 1993.

Master of Architecture, Iowa State University, 1995.

Concentration in custom residential - projects in the Madison Club, The Hideaway, Mirada, Indian Wells Country Club, and numerous homes across the Coachella Valley. Projects also located throughout California, Arizona, Utah, and Virginia. Tenant Improvements, Offices, and Retail.

Started practice in 2002- have lived and worked in Palm Springs since 1998. 

Biggest bummer in my life is having to stare at a computer screen and get work done when its so absurdly beautiful outside. I had to obscure the windows in my office just so I can concentrate.

I am a Modernist at Heart, but fascinated by early California, Mexican, and Mediterranean works and their influence on Modernism here. I am lucky to live in a Mid Century modern home in the center of Palm Springs, although its time to remodel it again...

I only want to work with craftsmen; I only want to work for people who are excited about what we are doing.

2019 is gonna be big- new seven building, 84 unit, modern apartments in Indio, a super cool lake house up in northern california, as well as an amazing new home in Summerlin, Nevada. All with awesome people.

If you can't get hold of me, I am water skiing at Lake Havasu- I'll get back to you soon.
