I am a Missoula native who has returned home after practicing architecture in San Francisco, living abroad and traveling extensively around the world. Today, I'm a parnter in an architecture firm in Missoula, working to make my hometown an even better community. My interests are wide ranging from the arts and hand crafted, to local food systems, health and wellness and the exchange of ideas. While doing architectural graduate studies and living in a small hilltown in Italy, I focused my thesis work on how to create experiential spaces through sensual engagement (using the five traditional senses, plus the sixth sense of kinesthetic movement), ultimately to provide a lasting memory in one’s mind.
My professional goals are to design spaces that matter, mark time, illustrate art and craft and dance lightly on the earth, all while supporting enjoyment of life. No detail, on any job, is too small to obsess about…and wonder if it is as beautiful as can be. You'll see this obsession in The Vantage. I aspire to make the best use of every square inch both functionally and asthetically so that you'll be seduced by this refuge...and do nothing but enjoy yourself while you stay with us.
I'm a yoga devotee, a painter, runner, skier, hiker and baker and cook. And traveler. I designed the unit to meet the comforts that a traveler needs but I also designed it to provide refuge and comfort for long term stays.
I hope you'll appreciate the attention to detail as you settle in...and we'd love to see you back again and again.

Like others from Missoula, my family attended multiple functions at Wilma Theater while growing up. I left for college and to experience the rest of the world and returned home to see the Wilma in a different light. It's a gem of a piece of architecture, on the Clark Fork River and at the heart of downtown! When I saw the quality of renovations others were doing in the building, I had to be a part of it...of being a steward of part of this building. I love the experience it can provide visitors both in terms of the building and what it's like to be an urbanite in little Missoula.
On the sixth floor and in the southeast corner of the building, the views from this unit are virtually unsurpassed. I knew that I could gut the unit, reorganize its layout and dial it in aesthetically and functionally to offer an amazing place to perch above Missoula, yet be in the heart of it.
