Objective : I have been a Registered Practicing Architect for a period of over twenty eight years. I have fine-tuned my leadership and project management skills over this period, and now enjoy excelling at executive level Project Management assignments. Utilizing the longevity of the technical skills and proven experience acquired, I have devised a harmony between design, architectural programming, master planning, Capital Program Management, value engineering and most importantly communication and successful, proven results.

Since 2000, I have been engaged in some challenging, interesting major project assignments. A few notable recent relative accomplishments are the Dallas Area Rapid Transit Orange Line extension six Station Senior Project Manager / Architect in Irving, Texas and on The Dallas Fort Worth Airport Terminal A & E Redevelopment Projects. In addition, being assigned as the Senior Capital Project Manager for the $28 million Mayborn Museum of Natural History and the $7 million Stacy Riddle Forum, co-currently, I lead these projects to a successful timely and on budget completion, being responsible for the capital budget and daily activities.

I have served with a local architectural and Design Build firms, being involved in such exciting successful projects such as Querencia, Senior Living Center, in Austin, TX, ($50 million), Barton Creek Retail, Austin, Texas, ($8 Million), Lewisville City Hall, ($12 Million) and major churches in the Texas area. This in addition to a long list of other commercial accomplishments, I trust will warrant further mutual exploration of this posting. During assignments such as these, normally, I served as the Senior Project Manager, responsible for project management, design, team leadership, design team selection and budgetary responsibilities

In addition to traditional architectural accomplishments, I have been involved in upper level campus planning, at Baylor University in Waco Texas performing construction capital management, design team selection, re-occurring capital program management, renovations and progress reporting, and user interfacing. I have also been involved in campus design at the University of Nevada at Las Vegas,

Upon your review of any of my materials, should any questions arise, please do not hesitate to contact me. I very much look forward to visiting with your respectful organization to discuss specifics, in the very near future.
