I have over 45 years of experience practicing in the field of architecture. Starting in 1974 in the Washington D.C. office of HOK, Inc. I worked on several types of projects including a new Superior Court facility for the District of Columbia and a mixed-use office and retail project on Pennsylvania Avenue’s “Red Lion row”. Moving to Hong Kong in 1984 I was one of two HOK leaders who opened the first international office for HOK. In 1990 I left HOK to found my own firm, Architects Pacific Ltd., which grew to over 110 people in four offices including Hong Kong, Manila, Jakarta Indonesia and Singapore. In 1998 I returned to the USA settling in Los Angeles where I worked as a consultant for the Archeon Group until 2008. While at Archeon I designed and managed the Solair mixed use project in Koreatown.
I have designed well over 30 completed projects internationally ranging from 30,000 sf to over 3 million sf, low rise residential to high rise office buildings, mixed-use developments and hotels. I continue to design projects in Asia and am working on hotel, residential and mixed-use projects in the southern California area.
I graduated with a Bachelor of Arts, major in Architecture in 1971 from Washington University in St. Louis. I am a registered architect in both the District of Columbia and in the state of California.
