“My military service to our country is a large part of who I am and has shaped my core values since I enlisted at 17 years old. In the military I have served in numerous kinds of units, had different types of jobs, and have been honored to hold various leadership positions including command. Being able to leverage that experience and bring it into the realm of design and construction is beneficial to our DoD projects and clients and is extremely satisfying personally. My architectural passion lies in providing quality design to my brothers and sisters in arms while pushing the boundaries of what is considered normal in this market and finding new possibilities. In any line of work it is desirable to interact with someone who ‘speaks the language’ and that is something I am fortunate to be able to bring to our DoD partners.”
