Starting a design-based structural engineering firm was one of my

original goals in life. I have spent my career following my desire to creatively blend structural design and architecture. Most structural firms do engineering design in a black box with little regard given to the architecture. This results in structural systems that solve the problem, but often not creatively. These solutions are done exclusive of the valuable integration into and with the architecture. Our firm takes an iterative and collaborative approach throughout the design process that I’m extremely proud of, and that our clients value.


Coolest experience:

I’ve always believed that you need to do it to design it. During the design of the ski jumps for the 2002 Winter Olympics, I went to Finland and learned to jump which influenced how I designed the two ski jumps in Utah.
