the focus of the website has recently shifted, highlighting related intrests, such as sketching, photography, and conceptual drawings. my work as an architect, including the office I established in northern California, are still included, but not the primary focus.

the site has also been reformatted, foocusing more on the images, making the site phone and tablet friendly.. (simply navigate by the title bar at the top of the page and/.or tap an interesting photo)

November 2011

In a bit of news decidedly on the fun side, I was one of the winners of this year's Architectural Record Napkin Sketch Competition. The sketches were to be quick (less than 10 minutes each) and on an actual 5" square napkin.

I completed four entries, as seen here. In an interesting case of "small world", I am a Ball State graduate, and my sketch was of a building designed by anotherBall State graduate, Craig Hartman of SOM, and one of my professors, architect Anthony (Tony) Costello was one of the other winners this year. The article can be seen here.
