He also leads the Design Technology Research Team within the DLR Group Research & Development Studio to ensure the firm’s integrated design teams are on the leading edge of design innovation and project delivery.

“My passion is bringing technology to our design teams to positively impact our clients, DLR Group, and – ultimately – the design profession globally."
