I am a young architect designing for small architecture firm in Seattle. My personality is a common sense, straight-shooter, variety with an appreciation for simplicity. Like Johnny Cash's song I've Been Everywhere, I grew up in Las Vegas, Nevada, lived in Gravel Switch, Kentucky, Columbus, Ohio, and, most recently, 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.
