Professional Registration

 Architecture:  Alabama #3642

One of the most important influences in my professional life has been the presence of strong mentors.  These extraordinary individuals help define my career and guide my thought making process.  First and foremost, I learned how to ask questions, how to understand the response, and how to weave this information into the drawings and documents.


When I first started it was all about using ink or pencil.  I would solve problems the old fashioned way - by using sketches and details to illustrate solutions and details.  Architecture was a new way of looking at the world for me, and I used pen and ink just as a photographer would use a camera lens, to capture and reflect space and purpose.      


One of the most rewarding aspects to me is interpreting a client's needs into a set of high quality documents.  After all of the questions have been answered, and all of the solutions have been achieved, the documents provide the strongest communication tool that connects the process of design to the built environment.   Whether its a commercial, educational, governmental or institutional project - the technical precision of the drawings resonates with every team member and leads to greater success.  And the best part of my job now is the opportunity to be a mentor to others and give back to the profession that has given me so much.
