A series of earthly layers, levels, or gradations in an ordered system. Strataz is a neologism representing the strata in my practice and my home in Arizona, “AZ”. Strataz personally represents the many layers of design and problem solving I find in the built environment—architecture, building, teaching, writing, and real estate.

Before you embark on your design and construction project, there are some very important questions to first ask yourself.

Anywhere in the desert Southwest, when you look across a vista, you see layers upon layers of topography—captivating, multifaceted, one building upon the next to form depth and a beautiful whole. This is my approach to architecture, an approach that has been defined and developed throughout the many layers of my professional life.
