AIA, LEED AP, SPRAT Level 1
As a member of the building envelope team, I was drawn to THP by the firm’s expertise with contemporary building cladding systems and sensitive restoration work on historic and landmark structures.
I was born in Buffalo, grew up in Indianapolis, and attended the University of Cincinnati (UC) for both my undergraduate and graduate degrees. As a student project manager for UC’s 2007 Solar Decathlon house, I gained hands-on construction experience, as well as a strong appreciation for quality contractors and craftsmen.
My passion for historic architecture and urban planning stems from formative study trips to France, Denmark, and Germany. Getting to experience European architecture and urban planning was formative, and I have enjoyed working with old structures and in layered, urban environments ever since.
Since graduating, I have practiced architecture in the Over-the-Rhine neighborhood of Cincinnati. I have an extensive background in adaptive reuse projects, and I have worked on numerous Historic Tax Credit projects, low-income housing developments, mixed-use buildings, and infill residential projects.
I currently reside in Over-the-Rhine with my wife and two young sons, where we designed and built a new home in the historic neighborhood. Operating as both client and designer reinforced my appreciation for the challenges that owners face during construction projects, specifically, how diligent upfront planning and budgeting, careful bidding, and scope review can help avoid cost overruns.
Outside of the office, I like to spend time outdoors with my family hiking, canoeing, camping, and traveling. I also like to stay connected to the city’s design community, both as a member of the American Institute of Architects and as a co-chair of the Cincinnati Design Awards committee.
