Why am i an architectural designer?

Because I love it! From putting pencil to paper to creating designs to turning them into 3D renderings to overseeing construction to the ribbon-cutting ceremony (just kidding) - it’s all thrilling and fulfilling and rewarding … especially if the client is happy with the results. It’s just what I love to do!

My design service experience runs the gamut, from million dollar additions and renovations to decks, front porches, screened porches, kitchens, master suites, bathrooms, mudrooms, laundry rooms, nanny suites and basements. I’ve been doing this for over 18 years, with no plans to retire in the near future. References available, of course!
