What aspect of building custom homes to you enjoy the most? The beginning and the end. I love the design process and interpreting clients wants/needs. Also, nothing sweeter than seeing a project cross the finish line!
What is your personal philosophy? Expect the worst and hope for the best. Things can always go wrong but its how we react to those things that set us apart.
What is the most amusing and/or fun request a client has made when building their home? We just built a two-story tree in a home with three slides coming out at different levels, a two story laser tag arena, and a laser maze room.

Q&A Have you always wanted to build homes? I grew up the son of a contractor. When I went to jobsites with my father, I would study the plans. I knew from the age of 11 that I wanted to be an architect. I began offering design/build services so that I could ensure the vision for each client’s home was maintained from concept to completion.
What is something most people do not know about you? I have a personal goal to run a marathon in all 50 states. I’m at 41 to date. More on this to come! Above: Seamless designs transitioning indoor and outdoor space Uneek Image Photography
Besides being an MCBC builder, what sets you apart from other custom home builders?

Our one-stop approach to architecture, interior design, kitchens and construction makes the process of building a custom home seamless and holistic from start to finish.
What is your personal philosophy? Although I’m known for my modern architectural designs, I am passionate about all styles of architecture as long as they are done well.
Do you have any pets? If so, what kind? What are their names and why? We have a Basset Hound named Agnes. I had a great grandmother named Agnes and have always loved that name.
