Over the past 20 years I've concentrated on residential architecture in the Washington, D.C. area. This includes additions, remodeling, redesigning kitchens and bathrooms, and adding screened in porches and decks. My designs emphasize the importance of natural light and spatial flow with a strong relationship with outdoor spaces and views. I enjoy creating entirely new spaces, as well as upgrading older houses by introducing energy efficient materials and systems to decrease environmental impact and operating costs. 


I will work directly with you on all aspects of your project to achieve the look, feel and function you are after.  My services cover: defining the project outline, design and feasibility, engineering and documentation, permitting, meetings with contractors and suppliers, product selection and onsite consultation.


I build long term relationships with my clients through trust, communication, and collaboration. A renovation or addition is likely to be the single largest investment you will make in your home. The ultimate success of a project is based on a unified team of architect, contractor and homeowner.  I will be your advocate throughout the entire process.
