Graduating with a five-year bachelor of architecture degree from the University of Southern California in Los Angeles, Ca. in 1970, I have been licensed in Florida since 1978, Georgia in 1996, and in North Carolina since 2002. I have over 40 years experience in commercial and residential architecture. I moved to North Georgia in 1997 and fell in love with the mountains and log home design. Fireside Log Homes hired me in 1999 and I worked as their in-house designer for 8 years. Since then, my focus has been to help people realize their dreams of a custom home, log or conventional.
