A Bit About Me

My initial introduction to building design came from my father who worked as a laborer digging ditches for a large commercial contractor in Connecticut. My dad ultimately worked his way up to superintendent and ran large projects. He often would take me and my siblings to projects on the weekends and would let us sit in the big backhoes and bulldozers. The muddy boots, the smell of sawdust, and outdoor work ended up planting the seeds that grew so that by the 8th grade, I'd decided to be an architect. I attended Roger Williams University in Bristol, Rhode Island, and received a Bachelor’s degree in Architecture in 1991.

Before setting up my own practice in Fryeburg in 2016, I worked for JCJ in Hartford, Connecticut, Wayne Garrick Architects in New Haven, Connecticut, Anne Folsom Smith Design in Sarasota, Florida, and The Turner Group Companies, where I was a Senior Vice President/Owner. The Turner Group is made up of Turner Building Science & Design, LLC in Harrison, ME, The H.L. Turner Group Inc, in Concord, NH, and Turner Group Design-CT, LLC in Hartford, CT.


During my tenure at Turner, I founded and was the principal of the Connecticut offices.  My responsibilities included project procurement, business development, design, and all aspects of project management, production of project documents, and building science analysis/investigations. On average, I managed five to15 projects at a time, with projects ranging from high-tech clean rooms to new public schools, offices, historic buildings, state and local government buildings, industrial projects, and a wide variety of building science/forensic projects, to name just a few. Additionally, I successfully initiated and managed Turner’s first efforts on an international level, and collaborated on projects in Rio De Janeiro, Brazil.

Today I use my years of experience in my focus on residential design, whether for new construction or renovation.
