Steve grew up in the rural northern coast of California where he had an early exposure to the natural environments that he now uses as inspiration for the design of urban spaces around him. He enjoys the challenges and complexities of high density, large-scale projects with a strong focus on design and creating unique, artful spaces. As an avid reader and traveler, he is a firm believer in the power of storytelling and finds value in developing a site specific narrative for each project that drives decision making in every aspect of detail and design. Steve has worked on projects througout California and abroad across all spectrums of type and scale including education, parks, retail, high-end and mixed use residential. Above-all, Steve has a passion for team building and problem solving and looks forward to all aspects of creating beautiful spaces for people and communities.
