My passion for design can be traced back to the days I could barely walk, whether it was Legos, K’nex, Erector Sets. I later followed iconic designers like Zaha Hadid, Mies Van der Rohe, and Frank Lloyd Wright.
I studied architecture at Cal Poly in San Luis Obispo where my love for architecture and design was cemented.
Then the fabrication bug got a hold of me and I moved to New York City working for a design engineering and fabrication firm.
Back in the Bay Area I started my own one human design build studio. My projects have included a design director role for a future-focused 22 acre community space in Portola Valley, an eco-minded off-grid tiny home built with 100% organic insulation, and various remodels around the Bay.
Now at M Designs, I bring my constructability and material science passion to the architecture of Silicon Valley. I try to learn as much as I can about sustainability and implement that into our California contemporary style.
In my free time you can usually find me in my fabrication shop making furniture, on the road in my camper with my wife and our dog, volunteering on a big art project, or out at the beach on a surf board.
