Born and raised in South Orlando, I went to William R. Boone High School and then attended the
University of Florida receiving degrees in Building Construction, Design and a Masters of
Arts in Architecture. I then worked for several local architectural firms including Schweizer
Associates and notably Architect, Nils Schweizer.  For thirteen years I managed my own
architectural firm in Orlando.

An invitation to work at Walt Disney World was career changing.

Disney was a great creative work environment and opportunity for me, spending over twenty
years there and retiring as a Senior Architect at Walt Disney World. During that time I was able
to gain much from the rich history and creative talent at Disney that shaped my thoughts,
interests and possibilities in art which I have loved from my early years.
