FIRST PLACE WINNER
This house represents the synthesis of the modernist experience to me. The form of the structure
is so pure, thin and light. It is a shelter in which to meditate on and within nature, with minimal
physical imposition on the land. Animals can even follow their usual forest paths beneath the bed.
I see the home as a temple, the homeowner as a monk. I would love to live there.

"Center of Attention."
All eyes are on the person under the chandelier.

Inspiration: It is what separates an ordinary design from a
powerful one. To the ancients, the word inspiration meant, "To breathe life into."
That elegantly describes my design process. For me, it has always been about the look and
the feel of the wood. With a keen eye for design elements such as line, rhythm and form,
I design one-of-a-kind wood masterpieces that enhance and empower how people live. After art
directing photo sessions of my work, it was inevitable that I would apply my photography
skills directly and make images from my point of view.
"Mission San Miguel."
Built over 200 years ago, the California Missions were some
of the first structures in the Western United States.
