Devin’s career can be defined by his three passions: design, teaching and the natural environment. Prior to architecture, Devin taught art and special education at the same elementary school he attended in Santa Fe, New Mexico. With a desire to expand his teaching lessons and a genuine curiosity about the built environment, he returned to school to study architecture. It was during an apprenticeship for a sustainable design-builder that he discovered his love for the creative design process and the positive impact it can have on the world we live in.
He has since dedicated his career to designing healthy places for all living beings. As a Senior Project Architect and Living Design Leader for the Seattle Studio, he is a sustainability resource for all projects in the office, connecting teams to the firmwide research labs and helping apply this expertise to advance their projects. Devin combines his ability to teach with his passion for protecting the environment in order to help clients reach their aspirational goals. His sustainable design efforts have been recognized by AIA Seattle Energy in Design, the Society for College and University Planning, and the Living Building Challenge—to name a few.
