Meet The Studio

a little about who we are

Founder and Principal Architect

Having grown up in Vermont, the Green Mountain State is the one place I truly call home.  After attending architecture school and earning my Bachelor degree in Architecture, I ventured to Vail, Colorado looking to begin my professional career, earn a Masters Degree, and fulfill my professional goal to become a professionally licensed architect. While out west I worked for Gwathmey Pratt Schultz Architects, a well-established architecture firm who’s been around long before Vail became an epic destination.  Colorado nurtured me as a young professional while affording me the ability to explore the outdoors, as well as the opportunity to meet my wife on the slopes of the Rocky Mountains.

Upon returning to my Vermont roots, I joined the Cushman Design Group, spending 12 great years at the firm and ultimately climbing to the position of lead architect.In the lead role, I spent my time working directly with clients on all aspects of their projects: architectural design, interior design, and landscape architecture. Throughout my career I’ve had the opportunity to work on residential projects of varying scale, from large and complex custom homes to compact homes and small renovations.

Fast forward to 2015, now at the helm of my own architecture firm, I continue to focus my attention on building strong collaborative relationships with the individuals and companies that execute the architectural designs developed by our team. While each project is unique, I have come to rely on a collaborative process that utilizes inputs and creative ideas from my clients and a team of experienced professionals.

"I look forward to welcoming you into my Studio and my collaborative process."

Architecture has professionally been part of my life since the beginning of this millennium. However, it has been an interest of mine for much longer. Being able to take this passion for architecture, design, and the people that enjoy the spaces we build makes this a dream job. I am able to take my skills to produce construction documents that translate a vision into reality. My experience ranges from custom homes and medical facilities to interiors with hospitality venues. I love the process of watching a project grow out of the ground and the collaboration of the Studio.

“It is so exciting to be a part of the VSAP team and I look forward to collaborating with you on your project.”
