Architecture and Planning | San Francisco Bay Area, US
With 26 years of experience in the San Francisco Bay Area, my professional expertise includes coordination and design delivery of sophisticated capital projects. While at Fisher-Friedman Associates, I headed master planning, project management, contracts, community outreach, and project interviews for the studio. I directed project consultants and managed the complex details of the design, scheduling, documentation and construction of numerous award winning projects. I also oversaw the firm’s marketing and communications efforts and construction claims strategies. My presence on the jobsite, during construction for dozens of built projects large and small, complements my complete understanding of project delivery and client expectations.
I am a graduate of Virginia Tech with a Bachelor of Architecture and hold a Master of Science in Architecture and Urban Design from Columbia University Graduate School of Architecture, Planning and Preservation. I have been a licensed architect since 1998 and LEED accredited since 2002. I am a member of the San Francisco Planning & Urban Research Association (SPUR), the San Francisco Chapter of the American Institute of Architects and have actively supported the LEAP School Children’s Charity for 20 years.
I authored a chapter on mechanical and architectural coordination for energy efficiency, which is published in the Guidebook to the LEED Certification Process: For LEED for New Construction, LEED for Core & Shell, and LEED for Commercial Interiors.
Personal interests include fishing, tennis, camping, and basketball. I served as Scoutmaster for the Boy Scouts of America Troop 246 in Moraga, and credited with 12 Eagle Scouts. I volunteer regularly with the Girl Scouts of America, San Francisco/Marin Food Bank and Habitat for Humanity, while sharing my knowledge and motivating students at the Academy of Art - School of Architecture in San Francisco.
