- What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?
In order to maintain licenses and certifications, and more importantly to stay abreast with best practices, I attend frequent continuing education seminars, lectures, etc. in addition to reading professionally-related materials daily. These pertain to communication with clients, design trends, sustainability, project management, new technologies, construction material testimonies, and other aspects enabling superior service.
- What types of customers have you worked with?
Residential projects large and small, including new single-family houses, remodeling, and additions are most typical and are quite satisfying. However, I also enjoy the variety other project types present, such as remote get-aways, back yard cottages, recreational amenities (saunas, rooftop gardens, passive solar shelters), neighborhood retail, interpretive centers, places for worship, etc.
