Biographical Sketch

Before joining USC in 2000, I held positions in several architectural firms in Utah and California, working primarily on historic preservation and renovation of existing buildings. Notable projects included the Salt Lake City and County Building and the Japanese American National Museum, both winners of honor awards from the National Trust for Historic Preservation.
