Differences: 2015 AIA National Convention

Thursday, May 21st, 2015

This past week I was in Atlanta, GA for the 2015 AIA National Convention.  I make it a point to attend this event every year. It is a great part of my professional experience and I gain great benefit from it. This year I was fortunate to present a seminar entitled “Mobile Technologies for Architecture […]


2012 Texas Architects Convention

Friday, October 26th, 2012

This past weekend I attended the Texas Architects annual convention in Austin. I also had the privilege of being a speaker in two sessions.  It was an enjoyable convention with several new ideas that I hope continue into future conventions. So in true procrastination style, I admittedly stayed up very late on Wednesday night completing […]


Presentation on the Island

Thursday, October 11th, 2012

Two weekends ago I was fortunate enough to be accepted to speak at a conference. The conference was the Lower Rio Grande Valley AIA’s Building Better Communities Conference. It was held at the Convention Center on South Padre Island, Texas. So it was a nice place to give a presentation. It was just a good […]


Virtual to Reality: 2012 AIA National Convention

Friday, June 1st, 2012

This year’s convention can be easily summed up in three words for me… Virtual becomes Reality. I have become fairly active in the online AEC community over the past couple of years. This convention was an opportunity to create some personal connections established online into actual connections made in person. Being in the online community […]


AIA NATIONAL Tweet Up Follow Up

Friday, May 25th, 2012

The following is a summary (& expansion) of my comments during the AIA National Tweet Up last week during the national convention. I was “interviewed” during the gathering to just give some quick thoughts on Twitter. I just wanted to get it out there for a bit of posterity. It was so great to meet […]

Thursday, April 26th, 2012

(Part of Series: New Digital and Social Media for Architects) I had this post queued up quite a while back, I just never put it out in the universe. But this week’s #AECSM twitter chat sent me to my backlog to revive it. If you are unfamiliar with the #AECSM weekly chat, you should join […]


Digital & Social Media for Architects: Schematic Blueprint

Thursday, March 1st, 2012

In the continuance of my posts on Digital and Social Media for Architects Series, I present the D/SMA “Schematic Blueprint.” I have been working on organizing all the outlets available for architects in today’s digital world. This list has some specific platforms and outlets specific to architects (and the AEC industry), but I think it […]

    Architect Leaders

    Leadership is the capacity to translate vision into reality. —Warren Bennis This quote rings true to me when I begin to think about Architects as leaders. This is something that is part of the essence of any architect; our common ground. We all do this activity on a daily basis for every project. Yet the strong […]


    Arch Postit SMALL

    A New Idea = ABPi

    OK. So I have decided to start a new little project. A side project if you will. (As if I do not have enough stuff going at the moment!) I came by this ideas just the other day during a twitter conversation with a few fellow architects. I am going to borrow a format from my good friend @archy_type, who has […]
