My introduction to architecture was through a mechanical drafting class in high school which led me to visit Taliesin West in Arizona. These two experiences started me on a course that nurtured my experience and knowledge in architectural design and practice. Throughout my career, I have had the opportunity to teach as an adjunct associate professor in the School of Architecture at the University of Minnesota. After starting my own practice, that lasted over a decade, I joined the practice with my current partners in St. Paul. While I have experience in diverse types of projects, I have developed extensive experience nationally in the design of sacred spaces. This includes churches and monasteries. In addition, I have extensive experience regionally in higher education with many types of projects including science facilities and student housing design. I can manage projects, lead the design effort and manage the project in the field through construction. Communication, collaboration, and listening are important aspects of my project approach.
