Architectural design is an intensely personal endeavor to me. I consider it a privilege to work with a client to design the home where they will raise a family, or to create a retreat where they can entertain or recharge. Likewise, I value the opportunity to help a small business owner realize his or her dreams with a space that enables them to serve their customers and grow.

In all cases, I strive to blend the aesthetic and the practical by addressing the unique needs of the client, and doing so with a personal touch by collaborating with the team through both the design and construction processes. To do this, I draw on experiences and lessons learned in working for award winning architectural firms in Washington, DC, Houston, Austin, and Atlanta, and leading my own practice for the past 15 years. In addition, I draw on my roots as a native of Greenwood, Mississippi, and my home state’s grit and passion for the arts.
