“Beauty and function should not be mutually exclusive.”

“Every element of a building warrants consideration—and every element not considered may result in a missed opportunity.

“My background includes a long-held interest in adaptive reuse and historically appropriate remodeling. Because of my appreciation of a wide range of architectural style, from Art Nouveau to Gothic, Mid-century Modern, Regional Vernacular and Industrial, I never force a preconceived notion on how things should look.”
