What I do...

I design Homes. Since 1997 I have worked on more than 200 of them, ranging from minor remodels to “ground up” custom homes. Although I am comfortable working in all design vernaculars I have a passion for local historic Architecture in all of its various flavors. I believe that my clients are the most important ingredient in a successful design and strongly encourage heavy involvement in the design process. I Love what I do and my goal is to make that self-evident in every project I work on.


Where I do what I do... 

I live and work in Northeast Los Angeles and as a result most of my projects have been in the greater Los Angeles area. I have worked on projects in; Los Angeles, Pasadena, Altadena, La Canada, South Pasadena, San Marino, Glendale, Sierra Madre, Beverly Hills, Bel Air, Monrovia, Alhambra, San Gabriel, Whittier, West Hollywood, Venice Beach, Laguna Beach, Camarillo, Oxnard, June Lake, Portola, Hailey ID, Lincoln MA, Acton MA, & Rhinebeck NY.


My Story...

I started my journey in Architecture in 1990 working for Douglas Ewing F.A.I.A. in Pasadena. Five years and an Associates Degree later I left Ewing Architects to complete my education. I spent a year in San Diego attending The New School of Architecture and working for Rob Wellington Quigley F.A.I.A. I then transferred to Woodbury University in Burbank and completed my Bachelors of Architecture in 1997. After school I returned to service at Ewing Architects and stayed on until 2002 when I left to start my own design studio, McIntosh Design.
