Hello!  Thank you for your interest in Stella Maris Architecture.  My hope is that after gaining a familiarity with my work, principles, and experience, you may see a good opportunity for collaboration!  I earned a bachelor's degree in Architecture at the University of Houston in the year 2002, Cum Laude, and have the equivalent of a bachelor of philosophy in ancient philosophy.  I lived a semester in France engaged in architectural study during college years and have visited Europe since then with the purpose of complementing my architectural education.  My work experience includes residential and commercial: retail, restaurant, office, medical, hospitality, storage, etc.  Some of those projects may be seen in the portfolio page.  I am professionally licensed to practice in Texas.

The design philosophy for Stella Maris Architecture may be best summarized in the motto:

 Integritas.  Consonantia.  Claritas.​  Please click to read more about this motto.

This motto declares a pursuit of beauty in Architecture and provides criteria for achieving it.  Furthermore, this practice endeavours to maintain excellence in client communication, design process and drawings, and delivery of a well crafted work of architecture.
