Every building has its own idiosyncratic constraints of context, site, program, budget, and vocabulary. The challenge is to successfully resolve them into a gracefully crafted architectural composition. Our role as designers is to ensure that each building has its own personality and responds appropriately to its urban context. This is what we do best.

I see tremendous infrastructure opportunities and problem-solving capabilities through fully leveraging technology.
I love finding solutions.

I am a transportation engineer with fantastic people skills who sees the world through the lens of technology, sustainability and innovation. Focus areas include connected automated vehicles, mass transit and multi modal transportation. My career has spanned all roles in transportation from being an Owner to a Consultant, from working on small projects to billion-dollar P3s and from being a Project Manager to a Senior Vice President responsible for 2,500 employees.
