I have had the privilege of founding a mid-sized firm that continues to serve clients at a high level. Since 1974 we have attracted good clients, but more importantly, good staff. We have always been very active in the AIA. Our work is respected by our peers.
Roz and I just celebrated our 52nd wedding anniversary. I enjoy what I do 24/7 and take breaks doing watercolors.
