A lifelong love for design & people.
I have loved drawing and designing since I was six years old and first able to draw lines with my trusty pencil and ruler. I drew my first floor plan in elementary school, finished construction drawings in high school, and spent four years at the University of Oregon studying Architecture & Interior Architecture.
Major influences on my design style have been drawn from several notable architects, but most particularly Robert Stern, Frank Gehry, Michael Graves, Antonio Gaudi, Green & Green, I.M. Pei, Richard Meier, and Frank Lloyd Wright.
I have a diverse background of interests from musician to painter, auto racing, the arts, charities, sports and others.
My vision is to carefully translate and design my client’s wishes into a finely crafted home, built with sustainable materials, that they will enjoy and love for generations to come.
There are many fantastic finishes and details, many marvelous materials and so many great choices available today.
My design flexibility ranges from Northwest Contemporary to French Country, Ultra-Modern, and Prairie to Asian.
I love listening to people share their lifestyle, needs and dreams, and I truly get excited when I see the smile on their faces as they see the plans for their new home unfold.
That’s why I love designing; it really is fabulous to be able to contribute to the realization of our client’s dreams.
