Over 20+ years at PWWG, Joe has developed a broad skill set in forensics, design, and project management in all of the firm’s key markets–higher education, market rate and affordable housing, hospitality, mixed-use developments, and renewal/re-use of historic buildings. Joe is a natural project leader–organized, results-driven, and skilled at engaging A/E teams and contractors to resolve technical problems and programmatic change during design and construction. His passions for detailing and documentation are assets to every project, many of which have won local and national awards for architecture, interiors, and preservation. Joe is also a passionate cyclist, thriving on the mental clarity that comes from tackling new trails and being in nature.
