I design artistic, technically exact residential and commercial buildings that reflect your spirit, respect the environment and stand up to the elements for generations.
Our standards are stiffer than code
I believe that solid construction is as important as artistic design. I use the Earth Responsive model to keep both in line with the vision. The philosophy behind the Earth Responsive model is that buildings, with good care, should last at least as long as it takes to replenish the natural resources used to create it. Most contemporary buildings will last only 60 or 80 years - it takes trees 100 to 120 years to grow to maturity. Our designs utilize natural materials and energy to assure structural integrity that stands up to the elements for generations. Part of being Earth Responsive is making buildings, particulary houses, 2-3 times stiffer than code minimum standard.
Technical skill combined with artistry equals a beautiful, sound structure
Architecture is an exquisite balance of heart and mind. Being a talented artist as well as a skilled technical designer brings that rare breed of architect with an intuitive sense of design and an analytical mind. Technically correct construction drawings are extremely important and are a standard in this office, saving you time and money. I combine natural artistic talent with technical training and the ability to design a building that is as structurally sound and functional as it is beautiful.
All work is executed in personal attention every step of the way
As the sole design architect, I take every project under my personal attention and control. From a small remodel to a state of the art building, I give you that extra attention that makes all the difference.

A successful history with clients in the Northwest and Montana
We have experience with the rough seasons of the Northwest as well as the capricious climate of Montana. We have an impeccable ability to design and create structures that not only stand up to the seasons but also stand the test of time. We are comfortable designing everything from family homes to movie theaters, historically inspired commercial buildings to industrial complexes. I am thoroughly familiar with a wide range of structural systems including steel, reinforced concrete, concrete masonry, post tension concrete and timber/wood frame. No matter the material, each design is a work of art that reflects the client's unique style and spirit.
