hello! I’m Seth, a principal and co-founder of Design Blitz. I perform many roles in the studio and across the business, but my primary focus is assisting the Blitz team with technical feasibility and code compliance. Great design can be transformative, and getting it there requires a dedication to service and technical excellence. My day is a success when things run smoothly and clients are happy.
I grew up in London where I developed an early and strong interest in the built environment. That interest led me to Leeds Metropolitan University for a Bachelors degree in Architecture, and Oxford Brooks University for postgraduate diplomas in both Architecture and Urban Design. I re-settled in California in 2001. I’ve been licensed to practice Architecture in California for nearly a decade and feel privileged to work everyday in an industry that I love.
I’ve been fortunate enough to work with leading technology companies like Skype, Comcast, Zendesk, SquareTrade, and Bandai to name a few. My work has been featured in over 100 publications around the world, including Interior Design Magazine, Vanity Fair, GQ Japan, and many international design blogs such as Contemporist, Designboom, and ArchDaily.
