Lynnwood, WA


I am a sole practitioner who uses a collaborative team approach when appropriate to provide services in all phases of architectural design, planning and industrial design with a focus on sustainable practices.

With experience in many different building types, the goal is to provide clients with a high level of service, good design and well-crafted projects. On larger projects, collaboration and work-sharing with other architects and designers when appropriate, with who over the years have built successful, long standing relationships

We utilize design and production tools and techniques appropriate for the project type and owner requirements. These can include from simple sketches to fully rendered illustrations and 3-D models to illustrate conceptual designs, programming, space planning, concept design, design review documents and presentations, permit drawing preparation and coordination, construction drawing documentation, construction administration and project management.
