A life-long traveler, Mike is fascinated by how different places can evoke different emotions, and believes that architecture has the ability to change the way people think about their environment. He is inspired by innovative designs that create moments of wonder, that are unexpected, elegant, and intelligent in both aesthetic and practical ways.

Bringing a balance of artistic and technical ability to his work, Mike believes that a projects ultimate success comes from working in collaboration with others to create a space that puts people first.
