A dreary day in Stephen’s office? We don’t think so. Just take a look at his warm smile, and you’ll agree. Before college, Stephen predicted that this career would be creative and exciting. He’d have it no other way. So he sought out architecture at the University of Minnesota. After one intro class, he was hooked. He later earned two degrees from the School of Architecture: Architecture and Environmental Design.
In 1980, his professional career began. Since that time, he’s designed it all—residential townhouses, warehouses, schools, automobile dealerships, and small commercial buildings. Today, years after launching his career, he realizes his prediction was spot on. His career is creative and exciting. Every day there are new problems to solve in his quest to design the best and exceed his clients’ expectations.
Perhaps his affinity for problem solving was what inspired Stephen and his wife to adopt two extremely energetic dogs. Maybe the names they gave their dogs, Faith and Hope, express Stephen’s devotion to them and his positive, optimistic attitude. That’s the way Stephen lives. His experience, skill, and creative problem solving are his tools to steering our projects. We have faith and hope that he’ll soon be successfully steering his dogs on their courses. If all goes according to plan, the energetic, loyal pups will soon join Stephen and his wife as they bike and cross-country ski throughout Minnesota.
