Research and Interest:

I can claim 25 years of design practice experience working for others,working for myself, and working in partnership with others, and 12 years of design consultancy. The work has varied from single family and multi-family housing; cultural buildings such as the Tweed Sculpture Museum located at the University of Minnesota Duluth; healthcare work, historic, government and commercial buildings throughout the midwest. In the first 7 years of teaching at NDSU I consulted over the summer with the Duluth based firm of LHB and the city of Duluth, Minnesota. All of my work has had a strong environmental or ecological bent with a desire to exhibit local materials and craft. Of late all design work under taken will end eavor to be small scale and create a binding relationship between place, people, and craft resulting in a beautiful and regenerative architecture.
