Mark joined the firm in 2017 as a Senior Associate.

Mark is passionate about designing beautiful buildings that have a meaningful impact on users’ lives, enrich their souls and improve the community. He relishes the process of developing elegant solutions to intricate technical problems that enhance the design and push the boundaries of existing technologies. Mark believes buildings that achieve the sublime are imbued with a spirit that is formed by a shared vision between the client and architect through careful listening, collaboration and an ability to concretize abstract ideas.
