A Cincinnati, Ohio native, Justin likes to pride himself as a pragmatic advocate for great architecture. Influenced by the rich American culture, his creative designs are developed with people in mind. He is passionate about understanding a client’s visions and delivering powerful projects and turning his strong ideas into meaningful buildings.
Justin received his Bachelors of Arts in Architecture from Miami University, and began his graduate studies in Architecture and Construction Management at Washington University where he graduated in high honors and was recognized with the Widmann Award graduating as the “Top Architect” of his class. His formative years were spent at a design-build firm in Ohio. During his time there, Justin gained a deep understanding of construction methods and learned to negotiate complicated field issues while maintaining focus on design intent.
Influenced by innovation, and connecting with people, it is no surprise that Justin volunteers his spare time as an Art Educator in elementary and middle schools in the San Francisco Bay area through LEAP (Arts in Education Program). A creator at heart, Justin enjoys the fine detailing in designing and building furniture. He enjoys sampling Belgian beer and exploring the beautiful state of California with his two favorite ladies, wife Maggie and his two-year old daughter Cora.
