In his over 20 years at CannonDesign, he has contributed to the growth of the firm through active design, operational and client leadership roles. Michael understands the architectural industry and its process to help clients anticipate challenges and capitalize on opportunities. He works with educational and corporate clients who seek exceptional design that respect the community, environment, technology, budgets and schedules.

I love that great design can respond to requirements in a way that seems simple and natural. I worked abroad and know that, from Buffalo to Kathmandu, I’ve never met anyone who didn’t enjoy a quiet room with a sunny view.
