Dan has been practicing in the Kansas City market since 1989, focusing on straightforward, resourceful solutions to innovatively-defined problems on a wide variety of project types including community, civic, educational, and residential. His goal on all of these projects is to create authentic places, deeply rooted in their site contexts, for people to gather and connect. His pursuit of design excellence for his clients has resulted in numerous local, regional and national AIA awards. A frequent lecturer on design-related topics, Dan also writes for architectural and design publications, providing an insider’s view of the architectural process to those outside of the profession. He currently writes and hosts a podcast for DWELL magazine called RM-3 (Raw Materials 3 Ways) that explores the sources of building materials.
