What do I do?
I create interesting environments that are not only conducive to the work that the client does, but also are visually indicative of the companies mission statement.
Born and raised in rural Northern New Mexico, I grew up regarding nature as my playground. I spent more days climbing around canyons, mountains and valleys than I can quantify. Every day was an adventure and the scenery was unparalleled. I was the classic architecture kid, built great creations with Legos, cut up cardboard boxes to create buildings and played until dark laying out the next great city with my Tonka trucks. These early experiences pushed me to study Architecture at the University of New Mexico.
Under the tutelage of great instructors and mentors, a strong appreciation for design was instilled in me. While studying and after college, I visited numerous locales to explore and absorb the regional architecture. Each location that I have visited, lived in and practiced in, has had a unique vernacular architectural style. Each of these styles have an influence on every project I design. Massing from New Mexico, open views and brick from Texas, the integration of steel and wood from the Pacific Northwest, and a material palette from all, help to create a perfect architectural blend.
I view every project with enthusiasm and anticipation, much like those early Lego creations. I like to think that I have no preconceived notion about the final design and aesthetics of each project at the onset. Each project is it's own entity, defined by client's insight, site conditions, environment and the constantly evolving architectural landscape.
