“We build long-term relationships with clients because we listen. Our design process is really an extended conversation with the client.”

With a father who was a woodworker, and an affinity for art in high school, Eric gravitated to architecture as a professional way of expressing his creativity. He joined UWRS full-time in 2008 after working part-time at the firm during graduate school. Eric’s primary responsibility is schematic design, and he often handles project management. Drawing buildings never gets old for Eric, and he enjoys the challenge of presenting a range of thinking to solve clients’ needs. He believes buildings tell a story, whether it is the renovation of an old saloon into a community center, or the design of a new high-tech college classroom facility.
