Chairman, AIA

Outside of work…
I enjoy my family. I have four grandsons and a granddaughter that keep me on my toes and have me wrapped around their fingers. I also enjoy golfing, wine tasting and traveling. Around the house you can find me landscaping… a pond and waterfall.

What you don’t know about me…
I was an “officer and a gentleman” and drove “big gray boats” in the Atlantic, Mediterranean and Caribbean Seas while in the Navy from 1972 – 1975.

How I got my bragging rights…
I earned a Bachelor of Science in Architecture from the University of Cincinnati in 1971. During that time I gained “hands on” experience with 8 different co-op architectural firms, one being for the City Architect of Leeds in England for 6 months. And the rest is history…

How I give back…
I like to play an active role in the community and am involved with several organizations: United Way of Greater Stark County, ArtsinStark Board, Stark Development Board and Salvation Army – Canton Advisory Board.

Who molded me into the person I am…
My father, a salesman for US Ceramic Tile, provided me with my introduction to architecture, sports and community involvement. On the flip side, my mother, an English teacher, inspired my love for education and my Christian and family values. The combination of both made me who I am.

Architecture that inspires me…
Architecturally, I would choose Frank Lloyd Wright’s Falling Water. From the spiritual awe perspective, I am enthralled with Machu Picchu in Peru.
