I have a Master’s Degree in Architecture and have practiced architectural design and construction management for over 25 years. As a Senior Field Engineer/Certified Quality Auditor for the Institute for Building Technology and Safety, I have conducted product and systems audits in a manufacturing/ construction environment, provided analysis of audit reports, conducted post-production follow-up audits, and prepared Performance Reviews of manufacturing facilities and personnel. I was the owner and president of Keystone Design Inc., a custom and speculative design-build company and was Director of Field Operations for Bar Vista Homes, a systems building company.
