As an architect, planner, and student life leader, Doug acts as a resource for our firm, creating design solutions for student life issues. His expertise is focused on student housing, dining, student unions, sports and recreation and the landscape spaces that connect them. Doug also notes he is “invested in innovative, sustainable strategies at the scale of a campus and its surrounding community.” He has worked on various, large scale projects, walking clients through multiple programming and planning scenarios to help find the best outcomes for clients and their students. Doug is inspired by great cities and place making, bringing that level of intention to our clients at the crossroads of education and design excellence. In his spare time, Doug likes to draw during his travels. “I can take my sketchbook and get lost in just about any Italian town, drawing the crowds, the landscapes and the architectural details,” he says.
