I am an architect designing for small architecture firm in Seattle since 2013. I appreciate simplicity so I am a straight forward person with a lot of passion for common sense.

I have lived in and visited a variety of places. Most of my childhood and early college life was in the great state of Nevada somewhere in the Las Vegas Valley. I also spent two year stints in Central Kentucky, Columbus, Ohio, and, Washington, DC. I proudly tout my travels including 49 US States and my plan to have all 50 soon. Internationally, I have been to 18 countries.

Most of this site serves as a record of my ideas on a range of topics. Sometimes it's fun and sometimes it's serious, but mostly it reflects reason as far as I see it.

I hold a Masters degree in Architecture from The Ohio State University and a Bachelors of Science in Architecture from the University of Nevada, Las Vegas. For a more professional description, check out my Resume.

Enjoy.
