As an experienced project architect in architectural and interior design work, I began preparing architectural specifications in 2001. I served as specifications leader for the Northwest US region of an international architecture and design firm, where I helped develop the firm's LEED documentation requirements and sustainable design specifications.
I also use my architectural and specifying skills to help building product manufacturers. I prepare guide specifications and technical marketing materials the way design professionals like to see them. I share my experience with manufacturers to help them get their products into designs and specifications. I identify LEED opportunities and sustainable design strategies, to help manufacturers integrate their products into designers' green processes.
Specialties: Interior design and architectural specifications, general construction materials research, sustainable design, leadership in specification practice
