IN HIS OWN WORDS

I love the desert southwest for everything that it offers, including the short jaunts to the ocean. When I’m not working, I’m raising my two beautiful girls, and riding my Bianchi on the hills around the Valley. I am currently working on my pitch for an LGA satellite office in San Luis Obispo, California.

FAVORITE PROJECT INGREDIENTS

A client who values the relationship created through the design process and is able to recognize the value of what we bring to the table—everything else is a by-product of this synergy.

SOMETHING YOU DIDN'T KNOW

I always wanted to be a DJ. I spun 45s as a fifth grader at our first school dance.

FRIENDS & FOES

I try to surround myself with positive, authentic and loving people. I have no time for snobs of any kind.

PARTING WORDS

“There’s nothing you can know that isn’t known. Nothing you can see that isn’t shown. Nowhere you can be that isn’t where you’re meant to be.”  – John Lennon
