Founded in 1994, my architectural firm specializes in traditional and ecologically sound design. I create settings for meaningful public and private life by celebrating craftsmanship, the human spirit, and our connections to family, community, place, and nature. About two-thirds of my practice is residential and one-third is civic or commercial. While most of my work is architectural, I also do village planning, landscape, and furniture design.
