From my studio in a repurposed greenhouse, mine is a full-service, client-oriented architectural practice in the San Francsico Bay Area, distilling SCIENCE and ART to create lasting projects that promote wellness and comfort.

My passion is to make the world, wherever possible, more beautiful and accommodating. My method is to leverage technical experience, guided by a committment to the Arts and Humanities, against the challenge to infuse every aspect of every Project with integrity and quality. My approach is research-oriented, evidence-based, and focused on the individual's experience with the world.

I am ready to work with you to make your project a tangible reality. If you haven't assembled a Project Team yet, I can help.


I provide functional space planning, architectural, interior design, graphic design, and comprehensive project management services.


An earnest process facilitates better work and I prefer working with clients, consultants, and builders committed to excellence.
