About Us

I specialize in the design of residential remodels and new homes. I work in many styles, but I have a special place in my heart for lodge style and arts and crafts. I was trained as a carpenter by my father and put myself through architecture school by remodeling apartments in Berkeley. After graduation from CAL, I started a design-build business in the East Bay, completing 115 projects before closing my business and moving to Marin and joining the firm Polsky Architects. There I completed an additional 81 projects, leaving Polsky in 2004 and opened my own firm in San Anselmo. I moved to Sausalito in 2009 then on to Sonoma in 2018 and Cobb in 2020. In all, I have completed 200 projects, I use ArchiCAD to design my projects so that I can share 3D images with my clients from conception through detailed design. My web site is an on-line collection of galleries displaying my architecture, a variety of my creative art projects and my design philosophy.
