About me & my work:

I am the Managing Partner of ZGF Architects, and have served as Managing Partner of the firm’s Los Angeles and New York offices. For over two decades, I have led teams for many of the firm’s most challenging and technologically complex projects, taking responsibility for the programming, management, coordination, production, and construction administration. I have been responsible for guiding the design and implementation of a broad range of research facilities, hospitals, courthouses, and other civic buildings nationally.

As a LEED Accredited Professional, I have a particular passion for developing strategies for the integration of sustainable systems, materials, and technology, including the design of one of the greenest buildings in the United States, the J. Craig Venter Institute in La Jolla, California, which will have a LEED-Platinum rating and net-zero energy footprint.

I have also successfully directed and mentored project teams for a number of clients, such as University of Southern California, the University of California, Children’s Hospital Los Angeles, the J. Craig Venter Institute, the Conrad N. Hilton Foundation, Bolsa Chica Conservancy, Cornell University, and the University of Chicago.
