From suburban home builds and in-town renovations to slinging concrete on budget-less projects in major metroplexes to creatively completing off-grid home builds with and for the Navajo Nation (Design Build Bluff
), I have learned and perfected my craft by wearing many hats and getting my hands dirty in the process.
Although I (sometimes) design from a desk behind glass in a proper, stationary office, more often than not I'm out in it. I need to touch, feel, see, even smell, and listen to a landscape to learn it, learn from it and ultimately, understand it so that the appropriate design can emerge and take shape. If I'm not actively designing, I'm riding, hiking, skiing or doing whatever I can with my wife, Erin, to keep up with our ever-curious daughter, Kula and our dogs, Chester and Oscar. It's here, over sand, in forests, off road, on trail, and atop mountains where my creative side is fed.
