With over twenty years of experience in historic preservation, land-use, urban planning, commercial /retail design, and multi-family residential architecture, Mike is extremely knowledgeable. He brings this wide range of experience and love of Baltimore to each project, enabling him to meet his clients’ budgets, programs, and schedules.
Mike is an active board member for Historic Federal Hill Main Street and is the current Design Chair. He also sits on the steering committee for the Baltimore Development Workgroup (BDW).
Mike’s love of Baltimore has always spurred him to be involved in community organizations that have an impact on the city’s architecture.
When Mike is not at work, he can be found investigating Baltimore’s culinary scene with his wife, Kumiko, and his loyal sidekick/dog, Mozart.
