Architectural Design / Millwork / Project Management



I have primarily been a problem-solver working directly for owners and teaming with architects and consultants. I have designed unique furnishings and owned millwork operations.  Additionally, I designed custom residences and provided detailed drawings for renovations and expansions.  My forte is the ability to conceptualize and convert a client's ideas and requirements into drawings and details that will accomplish any task.  Three of my specialties are custom design, space planning, and detailing.
