As a practicing architect in Central Texas, I have twenty-five years of
professional experience with corporate shell and interiors, commercial,
government, hospitality, medical, educational, and retail sector projects. 
A LEED Accredited Professional, scopes address sustainability and climate change 
through whole building design and integration of green strategies.

.

 Complementing architectural design and balancing creative processes 
with project management, construction documents, and construction administration, 
I have explored the 'art' of architecture with competitions and independent contracts. 
Life is balanced with community activism and environmental stewardship. 

.

A self-taught artist, painting and assemblage provides an opportunity 
to focus on the figure removed from architectural context.
Handcrafted jewelry, murals, and sculpture bring form to negative space.
Ethnographic art collection and sales, including archaic or pre-Dynastic
and Dynastic Chinese jades and Native American art and earthy jewelry
complements art exploration and sustainable design.

.

In Louisiana and New Mexico, I have focused upon regional adaptations
to climate and environment, and local and regional vernacular architecture.
In Louisiana, I hosted fine art events and represented
developing and established artists at my gallery, DOWNSTAIRS.
