Experience

Greetings, I am an Architect living in the Chicago area. I was raised in small-town Wisconsin, went to college in Milwaukee and then headed to the “windy city”. Since the time of the Chicago fire, this city has been a mecca that has drawn Architects from far and wide. Like many others, I followed a well-worn path to explore and be a part of the city’s architectural heritage.
