Building designer. Designer Member of the Texas institute of Building Design in the 60's and 70's. Associate member of the California Institute of Building Design in the 60's. I have designed houses of all shapes and sizes, apartment complex's, office buildings, shopping centers since the year 1960 as an independently owned and operated business . I have worked for some of the largest builders in the southwest and in many cities and states, like Texas, New Mexico, Arizona, Colorado and Florida. I officially started my business in 1961, and closed in 1997, and remain a semi retired Architectural Building Designer. I prefer to do the preliminary designing of floor plans and elevations for clients, but can do the whole project when needed. I spent several years as a structural steel detailer for local fabricators prior to starting my own business. I have acted as inspector and quality control for major builders in my area.
