“I work collaboratively with my clients, and the process begins with a clear understanding of what they want to accomplish. When possible, I bring the builder into the project early on. As I work closely with the builder and the client throughout the project, we'll inevitably uncover additional opportunities, and we incorporate those ideas along the way. I encourage the dialog to continue throughout the process — from design through construction. The result is a project that really fits the client and is one they can take ownership in.”
