XR & Digital Twins

Enable Effective Decisions

through Spatial Experience

With my deep expertise in XR technology and digital twins -- researching, developing, testing, and applying XR on hundreds of successful projects over my career -- I ensure your successful adoption of this technology to benefit mission-critical projects, business units, and the enterprise.​


I successfully champion virtual reality and augmented reality in industry, and have proven they enhance productivity, sustainability, and equity for designers, builders, and owners.​


I can work with you to identify and achieve a tangible return on investment in this emerging technology.


Lean & Prefabrication

Drive WasteOut of Construction

The AEC industry is filled with waste, and there are abundant challenges and opportunities to make the built environment more affordable, sustainable, and equitable. 


We must adopt a continuous improvement mindset, and leverage new methodologies, processes, and technologies to change the way we design and build.​


Leveraging my background in lean construction and supporting prefabricated, volumetric modular construction, I can help you drive waste from your projects and processes to save time and money.

A bit about me



I am a professionally licensed architect with extensive experience developing and implementing strategy and innovation, to help companies realize tangible business results from their investment in technology. 


AEC professionals struggle to enjoy a return on their investment in emerging technology as much as tech companies struggle to meaningfully understand the challenges faced by  enterprise customers.


This is where I come in, with solid experience and a keen ability to translate and establish value across industry and technology. 

It is my personal mission to help create a more sustainable world through thoughtful application of spatially contextual data to improve design, construction, and operation of the built environment.
