Growing up, I had a strong sense of service while dreaming of becoming an architect. I am proud to have served in the Marine Corps and graduated from the school of my choosing. I appreciate the design process and the variety of experiences each project brings. I love life’s journey and feel blessed to share it with my wife and children.
