Architectural Design Firm - I grew up just north of Chicago, IL - a city that influenced my belief in the importance of Architecture. I have since had the good fortune of living, working and studying in Europe, the Middle East and Asia. I feel that Architecture is best understood and pursued as the union of art, culture and technology. I bring this breadth of cultural experience to bear on all of my design projects. I seek design solutions that make sense for my clients and as a result, I'm comfortable working in multiple idioms of design - Contemporary, Traditional, some combination of the two; ultimately, I judge my work on how well it reflects my clients. In addition to Architecture, I have a passion for opera, traveling, the arts and history. I also coach a youth lacrosse team, and play in a men’s hockey league.
