“I am devoted to working with a team of industry professionals who work towards illuminating the carbon footprint a design leaves upon the planet. Therefore, I am focused on optimizing my contribution to the project’s potential to react to, rather than impose upon, the surrounding scenery. Each project is an opportunity to explore new avenues of design, building science and construction methodologies. My firms mission statement is to: “DESIGN IT SMART, BUILD IT STRONG, FINISH IT RIGHT!” Smart technology is factored into each component of my designs providing the ability to intuitively sense and change with the surrounding environment.”
