Education: Bachelor of Science (Physics), University of Southern California
Professional Background: 25+ years in Acoustical Consulting
Design and Teaching Philosophies: My goal with teaching is for aspiring architects to “listen” to the world around them much the same way that they are being taught to see the world around them. It is important to also be able to describe in objective terms what we hear subjectively. That can only be done with listening and learning a common language to describe what we hear and how to improve the listening environment.
