Loving what I do.
I’m the owner of PHX Architecture. In our 18th year of business we have established a name and reputation in our community. Now we are expanding into southern California and taking that brand to the next level. It is very exciting to take this journey and bring our talented team to greater heights.
Yes, I’ve always believe that we need to give back to our community. I sit on the board of Scottsdale Public Art and the Arizona Opera. I think the arts are an important part of our community that is overlooked these days and I work toward keeping them alive.
