Architect, NCARB, LEED AP
Vice President of Architecture

Upon graduating with a professional BArch degree from Cal Poly Pomona, I pursued and completed a Master of Building Science degree from the University of Southern California, where I was the recipient of the Outstanding Thesis Award. My background is in sustainability and technology and my work has been published in various trade publications and has been presented at various conferences. With over a decade of commercial architecture experience, I have been able to work on many exciting projects. I successfully led and managed two LEED Gold projects in the New Construction and Commercial Interiors guidelines while at a previous firm, and now work on many influential projects that serve the local community. I am a licensed Architect in the states of California and Texas and hold an NCARB certification. I am active in the community and serve on various boards. I enjoy spending time with my wife and three children and enjoy many outdoor activities.
