I take a holistic approach to acoustic strategy. I trained in architecture and acoustics. Over the years, those skills have merged into a blended career in theatre design, room acoustics, and sound isolation. I love working with clients and design teams to produce creative solutions.

I enjoy creating solutions that help people connect. Acoustics impact the ability of people to connect. Just like glare can cause eyestrain, unwanted noise creates fatigue. My work is in controlling noise/vibration, limiting spill of sound between spaces, and in optimizing the sound within a space—whether it is for a performance to a crowd or a video conference for two.

Transforming something strong into something excellent drives me. I have an internal fire that pushes me toward achievement, and I use that to help my clients achieve their desired results. I’m experienced working in a wide variety of building types serving both venue owners and design teams. I enjoy being part of moving the needle from good to great.

Continuous improvement is a high value for me. I am energized by solving problems. Noise and vibration issues are rarely straightforward. The investigative work and computer modeling required to get the answers to an issue never fail to engage me. I’m innately curious, and truly enjoy diving deep into issues to get to the solution.
