I am not a true native of Arizona but close enough. My parents moved away two months before I was born and I visited here many times in my youth. I returned for good in 1978 to live with my grandmother and attend college. In 1983 I received my Bachelor of Architecture from the College of Architecture at Arizona State University in Tempe.
After I graduated I gained a wide variety of experience with several architectural firms in the Phoenix area. Then in 1993 I put out my own shingle.
In the nearly 22 years as principal of my own firm I have expanded my reach by becoming NCARB certified and obtaining registrations in 40 states and the District of Columbia. During this time I have overseen hundreds of projects in a diverse range of building types, including food service, hospitality, retail, medical, senior living, mixed use and historic preservation/renovation.
Today I oversee the marketing, business and legal side of the firm. I am also in charge of the operational systems and developing our social media presence. As an avid photographer I have personally taken most of the photographs on this website. I am passionate about what One Architecture can do for our clients and would like to show anyone that is interested in gaining a solid business partner.
