Designing and building your own home or addition is an exciting and rewarding experience.  Through active listening, I understand my client’s needs and vision.  Being sensitive to lifestyle, human scale, and living patterns, I am able to create a design concept that supports the values and characteristics unique to each client.  I believe design is more than just planning the physical space to meet your needs; it also must provide a sense of comfort and peace in your home.  

I use creative ideas with a practical common sense approach, resulting in a balance of sensibility and beauty.  Combining thoughtful detailing and refinement along with the use of natural light and materials, I strive to create a home of timeless quality.

Born and raised in the Pacific Northwest, I love the unique beauty and character of the region. When I am not working, you can find my wife and I hiking on nature trails identifying bird calls, or photographing scenic landscapes and wildlife from sunrise to sunset.
