Why HDG Architects?
The firm culture, atmosphere, projects, clients, and fellow staff all keep me here and motivated.  It’s a great place to work, with a friendly collegial atmosphere and great clients who share our personal and moral values.  The project typologies strongly align with my interests to design architecture that benefits the community.

What is your most memorable project to date?
My most memorable project would be the first project I ever worked on from conception until completion, an Intergenerational Day Care Center in Surprise, Arizona.  I was fresh out of school, having completed my thesis on an Intergenerational Daycare.  The concept for the project was to mix an elderly population with a pre-school aged population in a daycare center where the participants can help each other thrive.

Your favorite building design/example of architecture in the world?
Joseph Eichler and the style of homes he designed in California that were able to take modern architecture and incorporate it into the master planned developer built communities.
