"As a design leader, I see my role as shepherding the organic process of growing a building. Over the years I’ve learned it takes a team with a 'project first' attitude to make for a successful endeavor. This attitude informs my design processes and thoughts at every stage of a project."

Mark’s design methodology stresses the importance of team collaboration focused on listening to uncover the deeper meaning of communication. Mark is committed to delivering excellence to his clients and their communities to elevate the human experience through design. This commitment spills over to his involvement as volunteer, board member, and community liaison for not-for-profit agencies.
