Getting Started

When I was younger I spent most of my free time drawing and building with Lego Blocks. The combination of these led me to the decision to go to the local Vocational School to learn the skills of a mechanical/architectural drafter. After graduating high school I decided to attend Norwich University and pursued a Bachelor of Science in Architecture.

Favorite Projects

Since receiving my degree, I have had the opportunity to work on several projects. One of the earlier projects, Launch Pad 17A and 17B located at Cape Canaveral in Florida was especially unique because I was strapped into a harness 18 stories in the air. Another more recent project that I was involved in was for the Plimoth Plantation. We restored the summer house of the founder Henry Hornblower and converted it into a dormitory for visiting Archeological Students.

Interests

When I’m not working, I enjoy Paddle Surfing, Philately, Free Masonry and scale model building.
