I am a life-long student of design and architecture, my construction focus on the fine art of building custom, residential, Craftsman style homes. I've put my thinking cap on to build both Victorian and Tudor style new homes too. Design informs life and life informs design. my goal is to take the one place on earth we call "home" and make it something beautiful and inspiring for the people who live within it. When I am not building you will find me having a good time with friends and family, and perhaps if the wind is just right, sailboarding on the sweet waters of Big Lagoon.
Born in Humboldt County, graduating from UC Davis, then becoming a San Francisco builder for ten years and moving back to Humboldt county in 1997, brings me full circle. I love how systems go together, life is an open ended building set. Raising children, building homes for our community, and enjoying the moments of food, friends ,and fire fill my soul,
