Custom design is far more than meeting a client’s budget and space needs. The most successful projects incorporate what is learned about a client and most importantly – addresses how they live. Through the initial meetings, together we will build a program to work from – essentially, a blueprint before the blueprints. An outline of not just your space needs but also your lifestyle, routine, and personalities.
As a designer, the most important talent I possess is the ability to listen to a client. It is my mission to understand your goals, interpret your needs and effectively translate your vision into a home design.
This would be impossible without listening. The success of a project is measured by how well the design meets your goals and expectations. However, if I have failed to understand you and how you live within your home, then I have failed to provide the best possible design for your family.
My goal is to develop a unique design that is not only responsive to you and your needs, but also draws on the knowledge and background I have gained designing widely diverse projects nationwide. The ability to experience and develop many dynamic and unique communities, allows me to bring a tremendous level of creativity and innovation to your project.
Since graduating from Iowa State University in 1988 with a Bachelors of Architecture degree, I have been fortunate to work with several commercial and residential architecture firms. Most enjoyable and rewarding was my tenure with a local firm focused on residential production housing on a national scale. The experience I gained understanding and applying demographic market studies to design has been invaluable. Additionally, exposure to design and trends throughout the country has given me a much broader exposure to the design process.
I have been fortunate to design a multitude of projects throughout the country. Be it custom homes, single and multifamily housing, or commercial product, I take tremendous pride in the process and working with the clients to realize their goals.
Collectively, the background and experience I have gained has fortified the cornerstone of the creativity I bring to my projects. The opportunity to work with clients to develop a design focused on their wants and needs is most gratifying. I look forward to the prospect of working with you and bringing my experience to your project.
