Mark is a problem solver. He is driven foremost by a client’s needs and the desire to find unique solutions for complex problems. In his own words he becomes “completely absorbed” in the process of asking questions and listening attentively in order to fully understand, and meet a client’s goals. Mark designs to optimize how people work and looks beyond the norm to make significant and meaningful change. His passion for supporting environmentally sensitive design extends beyond architecture to his personal life as an early adopter of electric car technology. In his free time, Mark enjoys sketching, designing and building furniture, as well as participating in a variety of outdoor activities from cycling and backpacking to mountaineering and rock climbing.
