He is a member of the American Institute of Architects (AIA), a Certified Documents Technologist (CDT) with the Construction Specifications Institute (CSI), and a LEED Accredited Professional with the U.S. Green Building Council.

"I believe design is more than the creation of an idea; it is the realization of that idea through clear and concise communication, and ultimately measured by the functionality of the final building for the users."
