I graduated in 1972, and Kirby Lockard offered me a job in his office. Being young and foolish, I instead, left Tucson for "the big city" in search of more opportunity. I ended up in Seattle where I practiced architecture for 15 years, culminating as the co-designer for the US Embassy and Consultate in Lisbon, Portugal (published in Architectural Record and A-U). In the mid-80's I followed the lead of a good client and got a Masters of Science in Real Estate at MIT. Since then I have manged my own consulting firm, planning and managing the design and construction of a variety of projects for schools, hospitals, and other non-profit organizations.
