Profile Accomplished Principal Architect with proven design leadership and manag
ement skills focused on the master planning and design of "technically driven" c
ommercial, government and university research and manufacturing facilities. Proj
ect portfolio includes domestic and international projects for a diverse cross-s
ection of Fortune 100 life science and consumer product companies.
Specialized expertise focuses on the full spectrum of life science facilities -
from pure drug discovery and development labs to GMP-compliant facilities (smal
l clinical scale incubator/university pilot plants, mid-range and large scale bu
lk biologics and pharmaceutical production, and aseptic fill/finish facilities).
Proven design methodology emphasizing brainstorming and team collaboration to
produce innovative, flexible and sustainable concepts/solutions, working in conj
unction with end users and the full engineering/construction team, achieves cost
effective and flexible solutions focused on sustainable and user friendly work
place environments. Recent project examples include the Site Master plan for San
ofi Pasteur in Swiftwater Pa and the National Cancer Institute Research Laborato
ry in Frederick Maryland.
A strong Adherence to Louis Sullivan's modernist axiom "Form Follows Function,
" molded during apprenticeships with internationally recognized modernist firms
Marcel Breuer, Edward Durell Stone and Perkins & Will remains a guiding principa
l in all project assignments.

Selected Projects
SAIC - F ATRF (Advanced Technical Research Facility) Frederick, MD, USA
Co-Design Principal for the programming, planning and design of a 370,000-ft2 bi
opharmaceutical research laboratory for the National Cancer Institute. The missi
on of the ATRF, designed to meet sustainability criteria established by the US G
overnments Green Globes program, is to support the development/ evaluation of ne
w advanced biomedical technologies and translate research discoveries to clinica
l settings. Planned as the anchor facility of a new million ft2 R&D research cam
pus, to support NCI's effort to develop more productive public-private partnersh
ips, and provide national training programs for these advanced technologies. The
research facility will provide specialized controlled environments required to
conduct discovery research, development and analysis/testing associated with can
cer research and the cGMP clinical manufacturing of drugs, vaccines and other bi
opharmaceutical products.
Sanofi Pasteur - Swiftwater, PA
Lead the Development of a site master plan for Sanofi Pasteur's major US vaccin
es research and manufacturing campus located on a steeply sloped and environment
ally sensitive site in the Pocono Mountains. The project provides three-, five-
and ten-year site development plans based on business plans for the Commercial,
Industrial and Research operating groups. Conducted a detailed gap analysis rel
ated to existing utilities, infrastructure and environmental permit compliance w
as prepared in support of the major building expansion program. A new "east" cam
pus was planned, siting each proposed building based on data related to footprin
t area, total square footage, utility demand, and associated site infrastructure
improvements (site development, access roads, parking, central utilities/distri
bution) and permitting impact to support the envisioned growth.
SAIC Vaccine Pilot Plant - Frederick, MD

tilized to provide segregation of personnel, material, product and waste operati
onal flows.
Bayer Pharmaceuticals - West Haven, CT
Lead the Development of a site master plan at Bayer Pharmaceuticals former Nort
h American headquarters site. The master plan was developed to support capital p
lanning at the West Haven site and included administrative, R&D, and manufacturi

tiatives for North America, interviewing executives at the West Haven site to es
tablish needs, and then translating this data into the site, facility and infras
tructure development required to support the business plan. Based on the success
of this effort we were retained to implement some of the follow-on projects.
