I am a small practice, working in a predominantly contemporary style, which I base on the unique culture and environment of Southern California. That said, I am very happy to work on projects that reflect a variety of styles and eras. As a “one-man” shop, I am nimble enough to work with the most experienced client, but adaptable and patient enough to guide the most novice. That, paired with constant attention to service and detail, makes for an exciting and dynamic process.

I often work with clients who seek to remodel and expand their existing homes, but my experience allows me to work quite capably on commercial and institutional projects as well—including those with challenging regulatory approvals. I feel fortunate to have gathered a wide range of experience across my career. It is perhaps most accurate to say my scope and range excludes very little: I am a traditional Architect.
