CONTACT 

Please contact me so we can discuss your needs. I can explain the process and answer any questions. 

After we talk, I will send you a proposal, ask for a retainer, and will bill upon completion of the report. I will revise the report once based upon comments from the local jurisdictions, if any, at no additional charge.

I'll always be available to help if needed.

 RESUME 

Before forming my practice in 2010, I worked at San Francisco-based historic architecture firms Carey & Co. and Page & Turnbull Architecture. I also worked as a senior architectural historian at California-based environmental planning firm Pacific Municipal Consultants and at Atkins, a $2 billion, UK-based design and engineering consultancy.

 

I meet the Secretary of the Interior’s Standards in Architectural History, History, and Preservation Planning.

 

I am listed as a Qualified Historic Resources Consultant with the San Francisco Planning Department.
