Stephen began his professional experience in the Bay Area with and has over 5 years practicing as a registered architect. During his time in the Bay Area, he developed an expertise in multi-family housing, primarily with high-rise and large scale projects sized over 200,000 sqft. Lessons learned from developing a variety of projects fed his passion for user-oriented design at the community scale, supporting some of the grassroots stakeholders in San Francisco.
