Comments

Graduated from University of Kentucky, 1975 with a B.S. in Architecture. Worked for various firms in Lexington until 1991. Relocated to Georgia then at the request of a Japanese Design/Build firm and have been in the Atlanta area since then. I took over managing my first firm in 1979 and was involved in management or ownership of architectural firms until retiring in 2012. Licensed as an architect in fourteen states and as an unlimited general contractor in five states over the course of my practice. Involved in projects throughout much of the U.S. and in Japan and Canada.

Married Emilia in 2001 and we have been together since. She is a native of the Slovak Republic and escaped from Communism when she was 21. She lived and worked in Europe as a professional model doing print and runway modeling until moving to the U.S. She continued her modeling here and still does some. Recently appeared in the movie TAG scheduled for release in 2018.

We enjoy traveling, working out and spending time with friends.

School Story

Favorite memory is working on the remodeling and additions to the school in 1974 as a member of the firm doing the work. At the time of doing this Dwight Price who was my guidance counselor during my senior year was the principal of Lafayette. I think he was surprised that I was involved in the renovation and an addition to the school. He hid it well though.
