architecture of place and balance.

I founded Volume and Void because I love being an architect for my clients.  Designed space is not something everyone can do well, but by listening to and collaborating with my clients I work to bring out the best for their projects.  I practice a holistic design that reflects a connection to environment, and an understanding of construction, materials, and care for the client.

Architecture is the connection between life and place.

I bring more than 15 years of experience in architecture.  My work and studies have allowed me to interact with some of today’s most notable and innovative architects and designers, as well as some truly great clients. I have worked on fully custom homes, office spaces, restaurants, a performing art center, public art projects, zoning variances, rezoning, hillside lots, and more.
