Experienced project architect / project manager for contract or hire Last Updated: October 11, 2017 (12 days ago)

An experienced project architect and project manager with over 26 years of experience in architecture and construction.  With an outstanding record of client satisfaction and project success on hundreds of projects ranging from small residential to large commercial and institutional, I am studied in high performance building technologies and universal design.  I bring strong problem solving skills to bear on organizational challenges, am an effective communicator, and an organized manager of people and projects.  With excellent teamwork skills, I have built a strong track record of creating teams of professionals that complete projects smoothly and consistently.

The majority of my experience has been equally balanced between commercial retail tenant improvements and residential projects.  I have also participated on a large variety of projects including an animal care campus, an air-force training facility, university buildings, a post office, a modular multi-family building, and others.

My experience is varied and extensive,  I adapt to new work environments quickly, and enjoy working with a team.
