Principal Architect
Class A Contractor

“What’s the big idea? How do we get it done?” Many designers stop after the first question but I am specifically interested in seeing our vision come to life in the construction process.  We started CIRCLE in 2005 with the goal of building a multi-disciplinary firm, thinking through every aspect of every project, both residential and commercial.  While we find the greatest efficiency and fulfillment from assembling our own team, we enjoy the collaborative efforts of consulting with other firms.

I hold professional licenses as a Certified Interior Designer, Class A Contractor, and Architect in the states of Virginia, North Carolina, and West Virginia. Those qualifications combined with my background in design and construction administration for large-scale public projects, ensure a thorough drawing set that leads to accurate bidding and execution.

You’ll find me on the weekends recording hip-hop music and cheering for the Oakland Raiders.

Master of Architecture, Arizona State University, 2004

We make serious work fun. When design matters, start here.
