HISTORY

I grew up building forts and tree houses which lead to a passion for building and architecture. I started a construction business when I was in college and ran it for 4 years. The experience I learned from construction was invaluable to make me a better architect. I started my career in Architecture in Bend back in the mid 80’s but had to move to Portland because the economy in Central Oregon. I moved back in 2001 with my wife and kids to be the project architect on the new Sister’s High School. I worked on numerous projects before co-founding GGL Architecture with Jim Landin. We worked on over 300 projects in Central Oregon before we merged our firm with BLRB Architects in 2010. Jim and I ventured back out together in 2019 to create GL3 Architects. We are excited to for the new venture and creating great architecture again.
