About

As an architect, I turn for inspiration both to the functionalist tradition and the architectural cultures of the past.

I believe buildings should please our minds and senses, like works of art and craft objects.

I believe buildings should serve our  intentions, like tools and machines.

I have years of experience as a construction manager and always pursue design solutions with an eye on economy, durability and efficiency of time and resources.

Every project is a collaboration.  Design emerges.

Experience

My most important formative experience was at Peter Gluck & Partners, an architecture firm that also builds their own designs. I worked there for four years primarily as a construction manager on a complex modern house in New Canaan, CT and as a designer on a house in Aspen, CO. Before that I had the good fortune to work for Andrew Berman Architect on Whitespace Studios, a minimalist photo studio on 37th street in New York City.

I graduated from the Yale School of Architecture in 1994.
